I think I might be in love with my new game for STAAR. I created Wrestle the STAAR for 4th grade and it was a big hit that several requested Wrestle the STAAR for 3rd grade. So there you go... it was born! Take a look at the pictures from a third grade class. Before you head down and look at all the pictures, this resource includes some of the new TEKS, plus financial literacy questions.
I think you will be very pleased with the rigor of questions. It is very comparable to STAAR but in a fun way. This will get your students away from the worksheets for a day and typical review and actively participating in solving the problems.
Another option- place students in groups of 4 and have each player play against another player. This would be a great resource for intervention classes, tutoring or small group instruction. There are many alternatives for your class size.
Do you need the sound for Let's Get Ready to Rumble? If so, here it is for your class.
