PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here it is! After many requests I have now finished the ELA Skill Checks!

There are 30 skill checks included in the packet. Each skills check get progressively harder as the year goes along. I give my skill checks once a week on Fridays.

The skill checks are very easy to follow for the teacher and the students. The student copy is set up in boxes so they don't get confused with where they are... they are also labeled with pictures- rather than numbers. The teacher has a master copy with directions for each question.

All of the standards are labeled on each question on the teacher's master copy. Making it very simple to assess the Common Core!

Inside the Packet:
30 Student Skill Checks w/ a Teacher's Master for each (60 pages)


If you are interested in the Math Skill Checks I offer them as a freebie on my blog. Click {here} to view those!

The Common Core Standards were developed and written by the NGA. © Copyright 2010. National Governors Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers. All rights reserved.

This is a great packet! I love that I can asses my students on a weekly basis. I have been using them since the beginning of the year and I will continue to use until the reading series is changed. I did notice that on some assessments one of the questions didn't match the curriculum for that particular lesson. I would have to go back and double check the specific lessons. But I am in unit 4 and I am adding questions to hers. For example the reading strategy for Lesson 17 is sequencing. So I added a sequence question to it. Also at some point in Unit 3 it stopped asking the students to write the upper case and lower case letter for that week. So I have continued to add that as well. It just allows the really low kids who can't seem to spell the weekly sight words an opportunity to get a question correct. So i do tweek it a lot now adding the reading strategy or grammar skill, to make it my own.

My district's reading series does introduce the letters in a random order according to their frequency of use in the English language. My district follows the reading series, Journeys. That is the pacing guide we follow! :) I don't have a lot of set time for Social Studies and science so I use the themed units in my literacy and math stations. If you have any other questions please feel free to email at taradc87@hotmail.com any time! Thanks so much, Tara
