Last Minute Mixed Skills Review

Wow!  I’ve posted 9 sets of task cards to my TpT store over the past 2 weeks.  For those of you who don’t follow my store, I wanted to let you know that I have several sets that review both individual skills and mixed skills.  My latest set has 15 questions that go with an expository piece and cover MANY skills, such as doubling the final consonant, deleting the final e, silent letters, homophones, a/an, combining sentences, inserting sentences, concluding sentence, and commas. If you need some last minute test prep for tomorrow or Monday, these would be perfect–and it keeps the test prep FUN!  😉


You can get your set here.

I’ll may be MIA until it’s all over with, so if that’s the case, good luck to you and your students.  Know that all of your hard work will pay off in the end.  Your questions have helped me take a look at things that I might not have otherwise.  For that, THANK YOU!! I hope that I have, in some way, helped you in your endeavors with teaching writing this year.  I’m rooting for you!!

Until next time…


STAAR Writing 2 Week Test Prep

Howdy y’all!  I hope everyone is enjoying the final days of Spring Break!  I’ve been busy putting together my lesson plans for the next two weeks…those weeks we all dread…TEST PREP!

I’ve completed a one-page document that outlines what I’ll be doing in my classroom to get my students ready for the STAAR Writing Test on April 1 & 2.  Yikes!  Can you believe it is so close?!?!

Best wishes in your journey to prepare these kiddos for that test!!  :)
