Cell Phone/Text Message STAAR

I'm trying to be as creative as possible to get my third graders pumped up for the STAAR. I did some copying and pasting to create the cell phone that delivers a text message STAAR question to the students. They are to select the correct on their own score sheet cell phones. The students will be doing this tomorrow. Afterwards I'm going to let them color the back of the cell phone to make it look like a cell phone protector case. I think they will enjoy this. I have two photos to share and concrete copies on scribd. I will post more pictures tomorrow as my students are in action using their cell phones.



  1. How did you put the phone togehter? Was it just the print out or did you paste it to something specific?

  2. Very interesting post….really informative…..of all the blogs I have read on the same topic, this one is actually enlightening….I was longing to read such kind of informative write-ups from a very long time…good to know that such kind of posts are there to help ignorant and novice people.
