Unfortunately, test prep is a way of life in my building this time of year. I teach 5th, and our P wants us to take the next two weeks before our ELA state test to "prepare." I have LOTS of resources and materials that should help my kiddos feel ready when they finally take the test. However, I am kind of at a loss as to how to make test prep enjoyable for my kids (or at least tolerable). Does anyone who teaches in a testing grade have any fun ways of practicing for state tests? Games, activities, etc.? We have lots of practice passages and question types that our students will see on the test, but I'm just trying to think of ways to keep the whole class engaged as we practice! The idea of reading a passage as a class, and then going through 20-25 questions, item by item, seems dull and boring. Thanks in advance for any ideas.
