Test Prep Activities & Lesson Plans From Flocabulary

Test Prep Activities & Lesson Plans from Flocabulary

We recently shared tips and strategies for using Flocabulary for test prep brain breaks. While Flocab is flexible enough to use in short spurts for a breather between prep, many of our features support rigorous test prep too.

Use Discuss Mode and Read & Respond to Prep for Standardized Writing

High-stakes writing exams typically include a combination of reading passages and writing prompts. Flocabulary has a few ways to help prepare your students for these tests:

Pause & Play

Use Discuss Mode prompts as short writing assignments for students to write in response to a text. Discuss Mode is available on select units, and you can learn more here.

Read & Respond

Read & Respond was developed to emulate high stakes tests, and can serve as a useful tool to build “reading stamina” in your students for test prep. Find a unit with Read & Respond, assign it to your students and have them practice reading shorter texts in preparation for lengthier ones on upcoming tests.

Who Doesn't Love a Printable Activity?

Flocabulary has printable activities available on every unit. From quick skill review worksheets, to more interactive and creative activities, these are a great way to circle back and review topics across subjects in anticipation of test prep. Skills students are expected to master with links to a few printable worksheets that can help for each:
– Analyze
– Identify
– Summarize
– Interpret
– Evaluate

Looking to weave math and literacy instruction together? Our “Everybody’s Got (Word) Problems” is a test prep fave. Also, if you’re searching for brain break activities to give students a refresher, you can use our SEL collection and Week in Rap lessons.

Watch These Test Prep Classics

Of course, we would be remiss not to include some Flocab test prep classics, “Test-Taking Vocabulary” and “Test-Taking Strategies.” The printable activities are, of course, a great way to support the skills taught in the videos. Check ’em out:
