Ready to Test

Is your child prepared to perform on a standardized test? While we may not all love the concept of these exams, they are helpful to determine at what level your child is learning. Using Common Core Standards (CCS,) this workbook tests your student in several areas of math and language arts at the appropriate grade level. I reviewed the 6th grade workbook and these are the CSS which apply. Under the heading of language arts your students will answer questions in: reading, writing, speaking and listening, language, media and technology. For math, your student will be asked to: make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, model with mathematics, use appropriate tools strategically, attend to precision, look for and make use of structure, look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. These sounds extremely difficult, but remember these tests are objective (multiple choice) so kids only have to darken the circle next to the correct answer. The right answer will be in front of them. This book gives suggestions to help kids deduce the right answer when they are not so sure of themselves. These tips and tricks will help them on future exams as well. They are encouraged to use extra paper to work out math problems.

CSS are aligned with college and work expectations. They are also evidence-based, consistent, include rigorous content, and apply knowledge through higher-order thinking skills. They are a useful measuring tool for home-schoolers. These workbooks are worth a try for anyone wanting to ensure parallel grade level achievement with public schools. A full answer key is in the back. Consumable, non-reproducible, 250pgs. Sara
