Test Prep Literacy Centers and Games


Are you preparing for the NWEA MAP test? Add these hands-on literacy centers!

This set of games and centers is aligned with NWEA Primary Reading assessment RIT Bands 131-180.There are a total of 200 questions for students to practice in centers or small groups. I use them during Guided Reading, following a Daily 5 Word Work rotation.

Four separate activities are included for the following RIT band ranges:

  • 131-140
  • 141-150
  • 151-160
  • 161-170
  • 171-180

Use the RIT Band cards separately to track progress within the range OR mix and match the center materials to differentiate.

Reading Centers and Games for Small Groups – Includes:

Primary Reading Matching Cards – use for matching, sorting, quick exit questions or check for understanding, or play a game of Memory!

  • Primary Reading Clip It Cards – print the 4 x 6″ cards, add clothespins to clip, and store in a plastic bag of photo box for a quick and targeted center!
  • Primary Reading True or False – I assembled these using file folders, but they could also be used as sorting cards. There are 12 questions per RIT Band ranged with answers circled. Students must decide if the answers are correct or not AND explain their thinking. I love all of the activities in this bundle, but these cards just may be my VERY favorite!
  • Primary Reading KABOOM! – Print and cut out this easy-to-assemble game and get ready for action! Labels and game directions are also included to play KABOOM with your students.
