How can you help before the FSA Reading test?
- Have your child read for focused periods of time to increase reading stamina.
- Have your child practice reading “less interesting” materials.
- Ask questions about what they have read. Ask them to make real world connections to the concepts they are learning in school (example: identify the theme of an episode of their favorite television show).
- Have them prove/disprove answers.
- Stress levels depend on individual children.
- Make certain you are calm when discussing FSA with students.
- Discuss tests with kids, but keep in mind their personalities.
- Depending on your child, it may put them at ease to see the sample assessments online.
- Make a game plan of the strategies that he/she is going to use. If they get stressed during the test, how will it be best for he/she to get back on track and calm themselves down?
- Help boost confidence beforehand (nightly homework, grades coming home, reading, etc.)!
