Description The objective of our New York State Test Prep Book for fourth grade ELA is to provide students, educators, and parents with practice materials focused on the core skills needed to help students succeed on the NY State ELA grade 4 assessment in 2017-18. A student will fare better on a test when s/he has practiced and mastered the skills measured by the assessment. A student also excels when s/he is familiar with the format and structure of the test. This book helps students do both. Students can use this workbook to review key material and practice with skill-building exercises tethered to New York's Next Generation Learning Standards. They can also take ELA practice tests that reflect the rigor and format of the official New York assessments. Students will become accustomed to how test content is presented, which will enhance their test-taking skills. By test day, students will feel confident and prepared to do their best on this challenging English Language Arts exam.
