Engaging Test Prep Activities: Great for Guided Math

Posted on March 31, 2011. Filed under: Assessment, Common Math Errors, During the Guided Math Lesson, Elementary math, Test prep | Tags: , , |

Christine King is doing some great work around developing thinking and reasoning and test prep!  She has an excellent blog (www.testsavvymath.blogspot.com) and some cool stuff up on her website at www.ckingeducation.com 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,
Dr. Nicki
