Countdown to the Writing STAAR

The new Countdown to the Writing STAAR gives your students valuable practice and gives you a powerful assessment, too!


Countdown to the Writing STAAR contains eight long version practice assessments! And each Countdown can be printed on just four sheets of legal paper!


Your students don't work an entire Countdown in one sitting, though. That's completely unnecessary and discouraged. Instead, they simply work one or two pages a day as a quick in-class exercise or homework assignment during the 10 weeks preceding the STAAR.

In just 15 to 30 minutes a day, five days a week, your students complete the equivalent of a long version STAAR.

That's powerful, especially if you opt to use all 10 of the provided practice assessments.

The Countdown to the Writing STAAR includes:

  • 8 long version STAAR practice tests
  • 32 unique and varied stories
  • 100% of the questions are to the NEW 2014 TEKS
  • Quick Track tracking sheet

Questions and Answers


Q: What do we get when we purchase a product from MathWarm-Ups.com?

A: You will receive one blackline master and the copying rights to the product for your students. Our copyright license does not expire, so you can use our products year after year with no additional licensing cost. All products are printed on unbound 24-lb bright white paper for quality copying and are in a resealable box or bag for safe keeping.

Q: Why use MathWarm-Ups when I can use the TEA released tests?

A: Unfortunately, the TEA has released only one test!

Q: How does Countdown work?

A: As a whole, Countdown is the equivalent of eight long version STAAR tests. You don't give a whole test at once, though. You simply give your students one or two pages a day for five days (checking it daily). By the end of the week your students have worked an entire test, and you have a whole-test assessment. Imagine repeating this cycle ten times over the weeks just before the STAAR!

Q: Is Countdown practice or assessment?

A: It's both. Your students practice the STAAR standards each day (five to eight different standards). You assess their degree of mastery at the end of each week.

Q: Why is Countdown more effective than other STAAR prep programs?

A: Think about the average STAAR practice book. What do you get? A hundred pages of STAAR material broken down by standard? Maybe two or three pre and post assessment tests? That's a good start, but the notorious data dump phenomenon comes into play. You may cover Recording category 1 in January, but by the time the actual test arrives, your students have forgotten some/much/all of what they reviewed in January. Countdown keeps the standards fresh by exposing students to all of the standards on a weekly basis.

Q: What is Quick Track?

A: This is a simple tracking sheet that students fill out after checking a page of Countdown with their teacher. With one quick glance, you'll know which STAAR standards a student has or hasn't mastered. Quick Track gives you, your teachers and resource professionals the data to make the decisions. Students love it!.

Q: Is Countdown to the Writing available in Spanish?

A: No. None of our writing products are available in Spanish.
