Get Ready for End-of-Grade Tests With Creative Playbook® Script!
Give Students Test-Taking Tools to Last Through Their Schooling Years

"When I was a kid I remember being really scared of two things: sleeping in total darkness and taking standardized tests. The first could easily be solved by any trusty nightlight. The second problem … well, there was just no easy solution for that one. To some of us, taking a test is like jumping out of an airplane. We know we have a parachute (we’re familiar with the test content) and that should be enough. Still, we wonder if that parachute will open at the right time. We worry that the test will “win” and we will lose. It can really affect our ability to think and remember what we know."

---Gregory Brown, Reading Recovery Teacher, Teacher of the Year, and Author of Questionella and the Fairy Tale of Multiple Choices

Questionella and the Perfect Prince: A Fairy Tale of Multiple Choices

Make sure that your students will be fully prepared for End-of-Grade or end of the year testing with Questionella and the Fairy Tale of Multiple Choices. Test-taking success is about more than just knowing the material. Some students deal with serious nerves and other issues when facing tests. This clever reader's theater story is an entertaining way to help students internalize proven test-taking strategies that can be very beneficial in maximizing testing success.

Students will learn how to select the correct test response when all of the answer options say, "Choose Me!"

Written by Reading Specialist and Teacher of the Year, Gregory Brown, this story presents a twist to the classic tale of Cinderella. The story provides a universal lesson to enhance test-taking skills and confidence, making it ideal for students across a broad range ... from Grades 4-12! Along with Questionella, your students will learn how to identify four main multiple choice test answer types, brought to life with funny character names, and put them together with information learned to select the correct answer!

Students get to learn and perform the "Multiple Choice Rap," which accompanies the book on CD, helping them to remember this creative test-taking strategy forever! View story details here.

New! Reader's Theater
Special Education Kits

Numerous studies have proven the effectiveness of reader’s theater for building reading skills in special education and learning-disabled students (see Corcoran 2005, Garret and O’Connor 2010). Corcoran states of the results of her research:

“It was determined that readers' theater is effective in improving student interest in reading, confidence in reading, and overall fluency in number of words read correctly per minute. Implications are that fluency programs are beneficial in primary grades and provide the foundation necessary for student attainment of vocabulary and comprehension skills.”
