Ashley,

When am I supposed to do the Reading Readiness sheets? Please let me know! Also, when they do the writing sample...what do I tell them to write? I am a stay at home mom working with kiddos to get them ready for Kinder. so sorry for all the questions! Thanks!

Lovely Commotion  (TpT Seller)
Hello,
I used the same Reading Readiness sheet for the entire year. Each trimester, I would observe/test students and if the task was mastered I would write the month and year on the line.
Writing Sample: We had journals that I just tore a page out of each trimester and assessed their writing off of that. But, you could easily ask students to write about anything! Be sure to encourage students to do their own writing and that it is okay if they do not know how to write like adults do. Just ask them to do thier best!

The pre-K portfolio and assessment is geared more towards the skills needed the year before kindergarten. Each assessment pack has a different set of skills assessed, based on age.

Hi Wendy512! Yes, I do think that this would be appropriate for you. You may just want to help parents understand that the skills within the assessment are goals to work toward and not things that need to be mastered.
