100 Free Skill Building Practice Questions for Pre-K to 8th Graders

This post has been sponsored byTestingMom.com The opinions and ideas expressed here are my
own.


  Every year my kid's school has a week of state testing for grades 3-12.  Last year was the first year that my 10-year-old participated in the testing.  I remember him stressing out about taking the test.  I tried to reassure my son so he would do as well on the test as he does well in school.  My caring words did not help my son with the stress of taking the week-long test at school.  He son wrote the times for each day he was to take the test in his planner and the night before his first day of testing, he spent a good ten minutes memorizing the time.  The next morning before the bus came for school, my son again looked at his planner to recheck the time that he was taking the test.  I wish I could have done more to prepare my son for this week of testing.

 This year both of my younger son's will be taking the week long state testing at school and I recently discovered this awesome website that will help my boys to be better prepared.  TestingMom has an array of educational programs to help my child in reading, math, vocabulary, and more.  I just love how I can find 100 skill building practice questions that are tailored not only to my child's grade but also to the test that they will be taking.  You can select the questions for your child by test, state, subject, grade, and more. TestingMom has questions that are relevant to the test that your child will be taking.  This site helps parents of kids preK-8th grade prepare their child for upcoming tests and it is so simple to use. As my ten-year-old son said, "it is like having a tutor through my computer."


  My boys enjoyed answering questions on the practice tests.  The questions were challenging so I knew for sure that my boys were learning.  My 8-year-old needed help with language arts while the ten-year-old needed more help in math.  So I was able to have their practice questions focus on those subjects.  I also had my boys answer questions in other subjects so that they could see that they would do well on their upcoming tests.  My boys got excited when they got the answers right.  These practice questions helped my boys to not be so nervous about test taking and made learning fun.  While this website focuses on testing, I will be utilizing this site during the summer also to help my boy's keep learning since the website has fun learning games also.  The questions provided on TestingMom.com will enrich my children's learning beyond the classroom.  The boys love having computer time after school and TestingMom.com
 will be their new website to visit instead of all those annoying kid sites they like.  I love discovering websites and resources that help my children become smarter.  


  TestingMom.com goes beyond helping children prepare for testing as they have a great section filled with parent resources.  They even help younger kids (3-6 years) get ready for kindergarten with fun learning games.  Kid's need to learn beyond the classroom and TestingMom.com has the programs to help them reach their full academic potential without the need for expensive tutors.  I want my boys to succeed in school so that they can get into the colleges of their choice and have successful careers.  My ten-year-old son wants to be an architect one day, so I value all of the extra help that I can get with teaching him beyond school work.  With TestingMom.com learning does not have to end when the school bell rings.  As a parent, I know the value of a good education and have a child in high school who has many great opportunities that are available to him because of his excellent grades.  Please excuse me for this mom brag, my son is ranked number 1 in his class and works hard because he wants to be accepted into a military academy.  My two youngest are in the gifted program at their school and at times, I can not keep up with their desire to learn so I love programs like TestingMom.com.  Be sure to check out what other parents have to say about this website.

  5. Testing for kids can be so stressful. Its crazy the amount of pressure they have to deal with during those weeks. This is a great resource. I homeschool my 3 youngest and am always looking for good sites to use with them so I already have it open in another tab. :)

  6. Glad my kids are grown up & way past this as I find too much emphasis on testing a bit scary & glad we didn't have to worry when our kids were little.
