Math Test/TAKS strategies

I have been informed that next year I will be teaching a 5th grade self contained class. I have been trying to find math strategies, mainly TAKS or test strategies, but I haven't been able to locate any. (TAKS is the Texas state test.) I want to begin the year with everything in order, and this is a piece I am mission. I look forward to any suggestions about how other Texas teachers get their 5th graders ready for the MATH TAKS.

Look at Lone Star Learning's Target practice. It is a great spiral of all types of problems. Their vocabulary cards are also very helpful...very visual. We also use the Target reading version.

TAKS Toppers is great (especially in Science)
Step Up to TAKS is also good

Visit Dallas County Schools and look at Smart Teaching. They have taken the old TAKS test (all subjects)and sorted them by objective. Then they gave explainations for all answer choices and ideas of how else questions could look....GREAT resource!!

The site that you gave is wonderful! Thank you for sharing!
I currently teach in NC and wish that I could help but I have nothing like the previous poster posted.
Good luck!
