I found this great site that has MANY practice questions for STAAR. It is even split up into categories. If you let your child practice on this site, be careful because the answers are at the beginning. Make them tell you how they got an answer every once in a while, to be sure they are actually working them out. Thank you so much for helping to prepare your child for the test!

Tomball ISD has partnered with Speak Up – a national online research initiative facilitated by Project Tomorrow® – to give students, parents, teachers, district employees, and community members the opportunity to share their viewpoints about key educational issues. By participating in Speak Up, parents can express their views to a wider audience of local, state, and national policymakers as well as the business community. This is also an opportunity for parents to contribute to the national dialog about science, technology, and preparing students for the 21st century workforce.
The survey is available on the Tomball ISD website at www.tomballisd.net or at http://www.bit.ly/SU16survey through January 13, 2017. Once you’re on the Speak Up survey website, click the blue button labeled PARENTS to start the survey. Responses to the 20-minute survey are anonymous. If the survey website does not appear as an active link, please copy and paste it into your Internet browser. We hope you will complete the survey. Your feedback and support are greatly appreciated.
