Spring Review and STAAR Camp
Spring Review: In March we plan to administer a review for math and reading that will help to simulate the STAAR test. This being the first year for the test, we want to ensure that our students know what to expect in May. Both tests contain questions that reflect the type of questions they will encounter.
STAAR Camp: In order to review for both tests, we plan a fun filled week the week before the tests. This a tradition done here at Steiner that allows students to rotate to different classrooms and review skills learned throughout the year. They will play games, review vocabulary, and even practice sample questions from previous tests.
