Show What You Know on the Common Core Mathematics Flash Cards Grade 8
Each deck of Show What You Know® on the Common Core Mathematics Flash Cards includes 90+ cards. The front of each flash card presents a question aligned to a Common Core standard, which is noted on the top-left corner of the card. On the back of each card, the correct answer to the multiple-choice question is given along with an analysis explaining why each choice is correct or incorrect.
Flash cards are a nice alternative to workbooks for test prep and general subject knowledge. Aligned to Common Core, this series of flash cards provides students an opportunity to make sure they cover the standards in math and reading without adding more book time to their day.
Each Reading Flash Card set includes 10 stories with 80 questions. Each paragraph is numbered within the short story students are to read, and multiple-choice questions follow. Students are to choose the best answer to the question. On the back of each question card is an explanation about why the answer options are right or wrong.
Each Math Flash Card set includes 96 questions with answers. All questions are multiple choice with an analysis of answers on the back of each card. Math questions can be very simple, "what is the answer to this question," or may be a more complex word problem.
Flash cards from this series can be used independently for test prep or concept review, or use them in a group setting for quizzing purposes. Cards come in a resealable plastic package for storage. ~ Donna
Preparing children to do well on state standardized testing is a goal of parents and teachers alike. Unfortunately, having book knowledge is really no guarantee students will test well. Test-taking proficiency is multi-faceted, which is why I think your students will benefit from these workbooks.
Designed by teachers for teachers and parents, the student workbooks begin with helping students identify test anxiety and various practical suggestions for coping. In the next chapter, several test-taking tactics are given including specific strategies for online tests. Extensive topical glossaries and examples are included. Two full-length comprehensive assessments conclude the book, with assessment questions constructed like those on standardized tests. Through this approach, students become familiar with question construction and how to answer multiple choice and constructed response assessment questions. The parent/teacher edition provides an introduction and suggested weekly timeline. Also included are the reduced student pages covering test-taking chapters and answers to the assessments. For tracking in the homeschool or classroom, common core correlation charts are included.
You will notice, with this series, the earlier grade books combine reading and mathematics. Sixth grade and up offers subject-specific books allowing more comprehensive coverage necessary at the upper levels, which provides the rigor necessary for mastery and academic success. PB. ~Deanne
