FCAT Games for Florida Test Preparation

State seal of FloridaImage via WikipediaThe Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, (FCAT), a achievement test required in public schools each year, tests students in several different subjects which vary by grade. Some FCAT scores are crucial to the student's passing to the next grade. Because of its pivotal nature, teachers and parents prepare vigorously for the test.

So, I have prepared a brief article that outlines games you can play to help prepare students for the FCAT exams.

Why games? Reluctant learners are more likely to engage in a game than in boring, rote memorization or other review methods. So, whether your child or students face the FCAT exam or not, consider using these games to boost their academic prowess. Anytime you can combine learning with fun, everyone wins.

    Thanks for this article. I have just started compiling a list of link for teachers & students. I still haven't gotten the chance to put all of the ones I have on the page, yet. I'm hoping to get it done in the next couple of weeks. I may use some of the ones you have if I don't already have them.

    Thanks,

  13. Welcome, Maiylah! I homeschooled my three children from age 4 through high school. They have all graduated now. But, learning is so much more fun if you turn it into a game. I guess that's why this topic appealed to me.
