PARCC Aligned Practice Testing (7th Grade) w/ Prove It 2.0 Skills (Full Keys Included!!)

PARCC Aligned Practice Testing (7th Grade) w/ Prove It 2.0 Skills (Full Keys Included!!)

Included is a PARCC -Aligned practice test including a fictional passage and constructed response writing activity involving a journal entry. The questions involve the following areas: vocabulary theme theme development context clues Two Part questions (Parts A and B) citing textual evidence characterization narrative text writing-journal entry What makes this activity so much more valuable is that is includes the Whole Brain strategy of Prove It 2.0 strategies. This technique encourages the students to indicate whether EACH ANSWER CHOICE is correct or incorrect based on the text. The students must write a response in their own words for all answer choices. This strategy allows the students to think about their way of thinking through verifying or justifying their answer choices with textual evidence. This technique has worked beautifully for my students and has been proven to improve standardized test scores. Educator TIP: It is even more beneficial for the students to talk about their answer choices with higher order thinking discussion stems: " I think that answer choice A is incorrect because, according to the text, ________________________________. " In essence, seeing, thinking, and speaking helps to bring about a critical thinking experience, that eventually, with practice, become an effective tool in comprehending complex text.

Last Day - Memories

Children in year 6 are often asked to write something for their final assembly. I have created two sheets. Sheet one should give them ideas about what to write. Sheet 2 may read Poetry Aid but the vast vocabulary can also be used to help them write their memory sheet. Hope these two sheets will inspire the children to write either a piece of prose or to have a go at writing a poem.
