3 “Before The BIG Show” Tips for Helping Your Child Before the Test Focus on what your child is doing right!Let your child know that you are proud of his or her efforts and have confidence in what he or she can accomplish.Explain how important the test is, but do not put undue pressure on your child.Make sure your child sleeps well for several nights before the test.Have your child eat a good, healthy breakfast.Make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather and classroom climate to avoid discomfort during the test.Make sure your child arrives on time on the day of the test to avoid unnecessary stress.Remind your child to work through each question carefully and use their STRATEGIES!

7 Objective 4: The student will apply critical-thinking skills to analyze culturally diverse written texts.Reading/comprehension: The student comprehends selections using a variety of strategies.The student is expected to draw inferences such as conclusions or generalizationsReading/literary response: The student expresses and supports responses to various types of texts.Reading/text structures/literary concepts: The student analyzes the characteristics of various types of texts (genres). The student is expected to recognize that authors organize information in specific ways.
8 Websites to assist you with Reading How do I help my child?Read nightly. At least 20 minutes of daily reading can help your child grow to love reading.Question your child as you both read
9 Example Reading TAKS Questions Why does it make sense that the guard accuses the second man?A He wanted to show the workers that he was smart.B He was angry about the crime that had occurred.C He wanted respect from the other guards.D* He was excited by the promise of money.The reader can conclude that both “The Sultan’s Pearls” and “The King’s Gold” —A* take place long agoB include a lesson to be learnedC explain why having riches is importantD describe the duties of rulers

13 Objective 3: The student will demonstrate an understanding of geometry and spatial reasoning. Uses formal geometric vocabularyName, describe, and compare shapes and solids using formal geometric vocabulary.Recognize congruence and symmetryIdentify congruent shapes and identify lines of symmetry in shapesRecognizes that numbers can be represented by points on a line.Locate and name points on a line using whole numbers [and fractions such as halves].
14 Objective 4: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the concepts and uses of measurement. Selects and uses appropriate units and procedures to measure length and area.Estimate and measure lengths using standard units such as inch, foot, yard, centimeter, decimeter, and meterUse linear measure to find the perimeter of a shapeUse concrete models of square units to determine the area of shapesMeasures time and temperatureTell and write time shown on traditional and digital clockUse a thermometer to measure temperatureApplies measurement conceptsMeasure to solve problems involving length, area, temperature, and time.
15 Objective 5: The student will demonstrate an understanding of probability and statistics. Solves problems by collecting, organizing, displaying, and interpreting sets of data.Collect, organize, record, and display data in pictographs and bar graphs where each picture or cell might represent more than one piece of dataInterpret information from pictographs and bar graphsUse data to describe events as more likely, less likely, or equally likely.
16 Objective 6: The student will demonstrate an understanding of the mathematical processes and tools used in problem solving.Solve problems connected to everyday experiences and activities in and outside of schoolIdentify the mathematics in everyday situationsUse a problem-solving model that incorporates understanding the problem, making a plan, carrying out the plan, and evaluating the solution for reasonablenessSelect or develop an appropriate problem-solving strategy, including drawing a picture, looking for a pattern, systematic guessing and checking, acting it out, making a table, working a simpler problem, or working backwards to solve a problem.Relate informal language to mathematical language and symbolsThe student uses logical reasoning to make sense of his or her world.The student is expected to make generalizations from patterns or sets of examples and non-examples.

18 Ways to Help your Child in Mathematics Have them do their homework! Let them explain to you what they did in class and on their homework to check for understanding.PLEASE PRACTICE BASIC MATH FACTS WITH YOUR CHILD (addition, subtraction, and multiplication).Please practice addition and subtraction with regrouping.Take them to the grocery store and let them estimate your bill.Get take-out dinner menus from restaurants and ask them to add up the total for different meals.Let them cook with you and do the measurement. Use recipes to double or use only half. Ask them to use conversions.Let them practice elapsed time by scheduling the day with you.Great Internet Sites:
19 Example Math Problems See our website for A LOT more! 1. On Saturday, the Corner Store sold 263 newspapers and Stop and Go sold 351 newspapers.

25 Frisco ISD Scientific Method Question – investigative or testableHypothesis – What do you predict will happen?(If…then…because…)Materials- What will I need?Procedure – What steps will I follow?Observations and Data Collections – What did I observe using my five senses? What did I record?Results – What happened?Conclusion – Was my hypothesis correct? Why or why not? What did I learn?Extension – “I wonder” What would happen if…? What would I change? I wonder… How could I apply…
26 Example Questions egg → larva → pupa → adult 1. The drawing shows a model of the Earth, moon, and sun system made from foam balls. What is one way to make this model more accurate?A Use wooden blocks instead of foam ballsB* Make the sun larger than the Earth and the moon smallerC Move the sun closer to the EarthD Change the order of the foam balls to be moon, sun, Earthegg → larva → pupa → adult2. Which animal goes through the stages of metamorphosis shown above?A* BeetleB FrogC BirdD Snake
27 Test Strategy LAB Strategy This strategy is used to help the students answer various questions.L: look at and label all diagrams, charts, graphs, pictures, key words, vocabulary, etcA: ask and analyze; what is the big science idea? Have I seen this before?B: be thorough; Have I labeled? analyzed vocabulary? Disproved and Proved my answers?
