Test Practice for Common Core Grade 2 (Barron's Core Focus Workbook)
Recognizing the need for a product that will help students navigate the Common Core State Standards being implemented in schools across America, Barron's has created this series of grade-specific workbooks to help students prepare. Barron's Core Focus for Grade 2 is designed to complement the Common Core teaching that second grade students are receiving in the classroom. This versatile book includes:
* Specific practice on the Common Core standards through a variety of exercises, including multiple choice, short answer, and extended response questions
* A unique scaffolded layout that organizes questions in a way that challenges students to apply the standards in multiple formats
* "Fast fact boxes that enhance lessons with added vocabulary, tips, and strategies
* A cumulative assessment in Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA) for students to demonstrate their understanding across the standards
* Grade 2 Test Practice can be used at home or in the classroom and will provide students, parents, and educators with the opportunity to enhance knowledge and practice grade level expectations in the Common Core Standards.
Common Core test practice for both English/language arts (ELA) and math in one convenient workbook! This is a good option if you are homeschooling and need to keep your student current on grade-level content, or, if you have a student in school and want to help them prepare for PARCC or Smarter Balance exams. Each book covers different types of questions (multiple choice, short answer, extended response and more.) The problems are easy to follow and you have detailed answers to hundreds of practice questions. Test taking tips throughout give students friendly reminders for test day. Parents can easily recognize the types of questions within each standard, demystifying those unfamiliar words and concepts. Barron's is such a nice series for test prep. I like how they keep it simple and give you what you need. Consumable, non-reproducible, sc, 182 pp. ~ Sara
