I am such a fan of task cards and I absolutely loved this bundle. Inferring is a tough skill for students so I love that this bundle includes different contexts for them to practice inferring. Thank you!!

STAAR Stems and Schema

You can teach skills, hold guided reading groups, and execute the best literacy stations all day. Yet, sometimes students still struggle with the STAAR reading test!

There are two variables that have a major impact on STAAR reading scores:

  1. Student access to rigorous questioning.
  2. Student background knowledge in a variety of texts.

Task Cards with STAAR Stems

All of our reading task cards have STAAR released question stems. In some cases the stems are scaffolded with easier open-ended questions. The scaffolded questions build on easier reading skills to bridge the gap up to STAAR rigor.

Schema for STAAR Passages

STAAR reading passages follow a concise set of plot lines, biographical profiles, and informational topics. We embed all of our STAAR task cards with these same topics and structures.

Using the same plot lines, biographical profiles, and informational topics directly builds student background knowledge. This has a massive impact on reading comprehension, as measured by STAAR reading.

It's no secret, background knowledge is crucial for reading success, and our results prove it! Your students will love you for it too!

STAAR Resources with the New TEKS

The new ELAR TEKS are here, and we're ready for them. All of 2018 STAAR teaching resources are aligned to the new TEKS. Of course, our newest products are aligned as well.

Readiness TEKS

Of the seven new TEKS strands, we build our STAAR resources around the priority standards, the readiness TEKS. That doesn't mean there aren't supporting standards in our resources. They just don't comprise the majority of the tasks.

What are the priority strands?

  • Comprehension Skills
  • Literary Elements
  • Genres
  • Author's Purpose and Author's Craft
