We have had practice OAA testing this week, so I haven't made a ton of new lessons, but just a few little things to share about testing!
We all know how a good portion of the test can be how well students understand what they are being asked to do. My teaching partner and I teach the kiddos all year to "code the question." On every assessment they have to do this. We spend the first few times practicing with them, and then they are expected to do it on all of their tests. We do this to prepare them for the OAA. They love it, and always say how much it helps! And we see the difference. While the kiddos were testing this week, I made these cute little posters to hang in my room to remind them of what to do!

And my last freebie is a first for me! When I was putting together my Nonfiction Text Features Pack, I couldn't find any frames that I liked for my anchor chart frames. So, I decided to make my own! I was pretty darn proud of myself (although I am no Ashley Hughes clipart queen.. LOVE her!) So you can pick up the frames and a couple other page borders I made by clicking the preview picture below for free :) Feel free to use them however you'd like! Enjoy!
