What Is STAAR Review to Go: Science?
Repaso para llevar: Ciencias—Quinto grado © 2016 Region 4 Education Service Center
STAAR Review to Go: Science is a student-centered review resource to be used to
address the Science TEKS that, based on current data, have proven challenging for
students. Each activity is TEKS-based and may be used to enrich Tier I instruction or as
a review at the rigor outlined by the TEKS.

Each review activity is designed to take 15–30 minutes and fit in a file folder to create a
convenient and engaging review resource. These activities can be used over 1–2 days
or up to two weeks as review activities in science class. They also can be used as
Saturday review sessions or during tutorials.

What is STAAR Repaso para llevar: Ciencias?
STAAR Repaso para llevar: Ciencias, the Spanish version of STAAR Review to Go:
Science, is designed to support second language learners in developing language while
maintaining the rigor of the Science TEKS. These students might be those who are in a
dual language classroom setting learning a second language (Spanish), and/or those
that are learning English and need to use their native language (Spanish) as a linguistic
accommodation during instruction.

Creating Review Activity Folders
Whether using the review activities in this book or creating your own, you will need the
following materials:
access to a copy machine and/or printer
clear tape
envelopes and/or resealable plastic bags
file folders, preferably a different color for each Reporting Category
glue and/or glue sticks

Create a set (or two, if needed) of Review Activity Folders and place them in stations for
students to review over several class periods or make several folders for each activity
and have the whole class work through each folder at the same time.

Follow these steps to create a Review Activity Folder:
1. Read through the Materials Lists, Advance Preparation, and Teacher Notes
sections of the activity pages and gather the materials for the activity.
2. Print the Labels, Task Cards, and Student Answer Keys. You may choose to
make copies from the book or access the digital files to print in color or black and
white. Access digital files at http://r4hub.esc4.net using your login.
3. Cut out the Labels, Task Cards, and Student Answer Keys and attach each to
the folder. You may choose to follow the sample layout or organize the folder in a
way that meets the needs of your students.
4. Print copies of the student pages. These are designed to be takeaways for
students to use as a study guide.
