STAAR Review Game

Susan Bush wanted to share what Katy did in class to review for STAAR. The students played the Flyswatter game with a twist. Three groups were playing at one time so more students could participate. She read/and showed a STAAR question from the Benchmark and the students needed to swat the type of question that was being asked. This helped students understand what the question was asking and they discussed what steps are needed to answer that question. This activity could be done on just about anything that you are reviewing. It only takes about 10-15 minutes of class time and the students loved it.
