Getting Ready for STAAR!

This is my first year in 4th grade. What should I do to prepare my students for STAAR 4th grade Writing? We are revising and editing, but how do I make it fun? What should I be doing right now to prepare my students for this state exam.

Thank you for any suggestions.

How are you teaching revising and editing?

I have pulled released STAAR tests. We read the passage together. Editing is easier, so we go through those quickly. For revising, I have the kids cover the answer choices. I have table teams read the question (for example? How should sentences 5 and 6 be rewritten?) and then teams rewrite together. Then they uncover answer choices to see which is closest to their revision. This is something we've done from the beginning, we have slowly transitioned into actual released STAAR.
