How do you use test prep books in your classroom?
BTW~I posted this on the busy board but wanted to try here too.
Thanks so much!

I do some of the pages in class - like I'll say do number 6-10 then we'll check them together. Then go on with numbers 10-15.

I also will assign some pages for homework and send the book home. Then we'll go over the problems the next day in class.

For something fun you could play a jeopardy like game, or do something similar to spell down.

We use our books almost everyday from Jan until april. I usually have the kids read a passage and answer the questions first thing in the morning. Then I usually blow the page up on our poster maker and then as a class we use our strategies to go over the answers. This way I can model for them how it should actually be done. It seems to work pretty well. We also break down the questions for example if it says what is the purpose of the story. I have the students write author's purpose so they know what they need to do.

We used them for the first time this year. I gave the students the pretest that came with it. This helped me determine where they needed the most help. Then, I worked with them on the different skills in their guided reading groups. I understand that guided reading is more for their independent reading level, but this was more practical for the time that we have allotted. It was also beneficial because I was able to see right away who got it and who didn't.
