Common Core Assessments and Online Workbooks: Grade 4 Mathematics, PARCC Edition

“Really a nice to have one for the PARCC test preparation. It has a right mix of math questions to expose the kids with variety of concepts at one place. My son really liked it and we too.”

Summer Learning Headstart is an excellent tool for parents, students, and teachers to help beat the “summer slide”. Evidence shows that students lose 4-6 weeks of learning over the summer. By using the workbooks in this series, students will be able to overcome this obstacle and be fresh and ready for the new school year. The workbooks includes separate sections for parents, students, and teachers with detailed ideas of how to use the contents. There is daily practice for reading, language, or math with an answer key and detailed explanation, all aligned to the Common Core Standards.The Reading workbook provides information for parents to assist students with the all-important skills of citing evidence from the text, summarizing, and making inferences. Aside from the written practice, there are also many creative ideas for ways to keep kids challenged and focused on learning throughout the summer months such as trips to museums, zoos, or nature walks. The workbooks also provide the information for accessing Lumos Online. As a teacher, I strongly recommend this series.

So glad I found the Lumos SBAC test prep for 6th grade LA because it lead me to this one for math. Was not disappointed. I compared the sample question format to the ones my son came home from school with and I am confident that this guide is on the right track.I feel confident using and recommending this book and wish I had discovered it when he was a fourth grader.

I work as an academic coach and use this book to prepare students for standardized assessments. I love the language and structure (aligned to the PARCC) so when done in small or whole group, provided a realistic picture of what students will see on the real PARCC. I also love the option to display text from a computer, this is great for online assessment practice.

This book is a great resource with a lot of supplemental support. With the purchase of the book, you receive an online workbook, mobile apps for your students, link to descriptive sample problems, instructional video, and a Common Core Standards Cross-reference Table. The only suggested revisions would be: 1) list the standards on the pages of each concept along with the sample problem or sample problem link. Despite the above-suggested​ revisions, I plan on purchasing other workbooks by Lumos Learning. Note that this company’s online resources are just as great.

An attractive quality of this book is that the teacher can use it a variety of ways: homework piece, pre/post assessment piece, independent practice during station time!!! I love that this text offers access to online workbooks, videos, and apps as well! What a fantastic bonus! The answer key provides valuable detailed explanations for students to understand reason for a correct answer. As a teacher, I would recommend this text.

SBAC Test Prep: Grade 6 English Language Arts Literacy (ELA) Common Core Practice Book and Full-length Online Assessments

As a parent, I am a proponent of the SBAC compared to the dreadful traditional standardized testing but I won’t go into that. I purchased this after growing frustrated with going from website to website to website looking for free test prep and test taking strategies. Well, you get what you pay for. I wish I’d discovered this prep guide sooner. It thoroughly compiled the material I needed for my son and seemed to focus on the vocabulary literacy that I was hoping for. The length and structure of the passages used for explication and comprehension are identical to the ones on the actual SBAC so I know when he takes the test there will be no curve balls for him to deal with. This is a must if you are serious about preparing your child for the SBAC.

The question format is multiple choice, but the questions require in-depth thinking and thorough knowledge of the skill. This is a great resource for building upon the skill being taught.
