How to Prepare for the 3rd Grade Halloween Florida Best Math Test Prep Math Activity

Step 1: Print or write down any data you have from a recent assessment or anecdotal notes.

Step 2: Analyze the data. Look for the standards that have been taught but are still in the red/yellow range with less than 67% mastery.

Step 3: Once you have the standards listed out, choose 5-6 standards to focus on. Save the lowest standards for whole group remediation.

Step 4: List the students in the red below each standard.

Check out the example below:

3. NSO 1.13. NSO 1.23. NSO 2.13. NSO 2.43. AR 1.23. AR 2.1

Step 5: Organize the students into groups. Some students will need to practice more than one standard so decide which one you want them to focus on and only place them in one group.

Step 6: Place the students that don’t need to remediate the standard you identified into a group.
