Product Description


Many teachers in Florida are asking:

  • How can I provide my students practice with a multitude of short readings like those on the actual Grade 3 FCAT in Reading?
  • How can I equip my students with the skills needed to answer the variety of questions on the Grade 3 FCAT in Reading?
  • How can I provide my students practice with multiple-choice questions like those they will find on the actual FCAT in Reading?

The answer to all these questions can be found in Mastering the Grade 3 FCAT in Reading.

Here are some of the reasons why this book provides the preparation your students need for this demanding test:

  • An introduction provides metacognitive instruction in effective reading strategies and text structure recognition, adopted from Keene and Zimmerman's Mosaic of Thought.
  • The book is written in a non-intimidating, highly student-friendly style.
  • An FCAT-style pretest helps teachers to diagnose student weaknesses and focus on areas where students need the most help.
  • Six chapters familiarize students with every kind of question found on the Grade 3 FCAT in Reading, including questions on: vocabulary; finding the main idea; author's purpose; plot development; comparing characters, settings, and events; cause and effect; and multiple representation of information.
  • For every type of question item, students are provided with several FCAT-style examples. They are not only shown how to answer a model question, but are given general instructions for approaching that type of question.
  • The book is squarely focused on the test. Students are given extensive practice with FCAT-type questions and readings. Every question in the book is identified by its Sunshine State Standard Benchmark.
  • The book is written by nationally recognized experts in the field of testing, and carefully reviewed by leading Florida reading specialists who help train teachers preparing students for the Grade 3 FCAT in Reading.
  • A complete practice final examination mirrors the distribution of items found on the actual Grade 3 FCAT in Reading.
  • Reading selections represent a diversity of backgrounds and interests. Students practice on readings published in nationally recognized children's literature: Child Life, Highlights for Children, Appleseed Magazine, Spider: the Magazine for Children, and Scholastic.
  • Unlike other test preparation books, this book does not include outdated "Think-and-Explain" questions or extraneous non-FCAT material. If it's tested on the Grade 3 FCAT in Reading you will find it in this book.
  • A separate practice final examination is also available from Jarrett Publishing Company.
