How Do I Prepare My Child for the EOG?

Below are 2 websites that will link you to a previous Reading and Math EOG. In order to prepare your child for Reading have them read one story a night and answer the questions that go with that story. The Reading Strategies taught in class are:

  1. Read the questions to the story. Read the title. Make a prediction.
  2. Read and outline the story. This includes allowing them to draw pictures and take notes while reading.
  3. Answer the questions, referring to the story and select the best answer.

These strategies allow students to slow down and think about the story they are reading.

In order to assist your child on the Math EOG, have them complete one problem a night leading up to the EOG. If the picture of the calculator is not crossed out at the top of the page, students can use a calculator on that part of the test. The answers to both tests are at the end of the tests.
