Testing Reveiw: Game of the Day -Tuesday

Trying to get as much review in as possible
with only one week left before the big TEST day!

Today, we took practice tests in reading and in math.
We checked our answers together and then I re-taught concepts as needed.

We all tried to do our very best work as we really looked forward to our
"Testing Review Game of the Day".

It went great! They had a great review!
On Tuesday,
 Our Testing Review Game of the Day will be...
from the full activity packet called, Powerful Prefixes.

This activity can by used for 1 student or up to a group of 6. The objective is to create new words by pairing various root words with each prefix provided, but of course, playing a game makes it much more fun!

These are prefix spinners.
Students use these spinners and the following root word cards to create words.
How to Play:
· (game format) Player 1 chooses one of the 3 spinners and spins the arrow. The player looks for a root word that can be paired with the prefix. If a new word can be made, that player records that information on the game sheet, and the turn goes to the next player. If the player cannot make a new word, he looses the turn.

The player with the most matches at the end wins.
Above see the recording sheet to be used at the end of the game.

Go have fun playing with them!
