We will be taking the Math AIR test on April 25 and 27.
Click on the picture below to try out some sample questions to familiarize yourself with the online tools.
DISCLAIMER: I do not in any way shape or form believe in practicing for these state exams. I 100% feel that I am preparing my students each and every day by teaching them math to the best of my ability. I feel that taking these tests waste enough of our limited classroom instruction time and I do not feel it is beneficial to waste more time "practicing" a test. I am however making this link available beginning April 11 for students to practice a few of the questions during centers and at home to familiarize them with the online tools. Gone are the days when we just bubble in answers on an answer sheet with our number 2 pencil. Students will need to manipulate tools on a computer keyboard. I also feel that this will not be too difficult for the students since we have used technology a lot in our every day math instruction. I strongly believe if the students come to school on test day well rested and well fed and come with a positive "I can" attitude that we will do great!

I came across these Cyberchase videos and games about
fractions. To be honest I haven't watched all of them yet
but thought I would post the link.
