Engaging Test Prep Activities: Great for Guided Math

Christine King is doing some great work around developing thinking and reasoning and test prep!  She has an excellent blog ( and some cool stuff up on her website at under Math Resources.  I would like to highlight a few of Christine’s Test Savvy Strategies!  The first one is Find and Fix My Error.  In this strategy students are looking for errors and then fixing them.  It’s a brilliant strategy and a way to get students critically thinking about the math!  See the podcast and lesson overview below.

 P.S. These aren’t just for test prep…I’ve been playing many of them with the k-2 bunch and they love them.  Children get games and they learn well through them!
Happy Mathing,
