This printable packet includes 3 assessments to give your 4th grade students at the beginning of the year. Assessment #1 is a writing prompt with directions and a rubric for grading. Assessment #2 is a 5 question phonics quiz. Assessment #3 is a vocabulary test.
The importance of these assessments are to see where your new students are at the beginning of the year and to determine the needs of your class. The assessments align with the end of 3rd grade standards. This purchase includes a writing rubric and answer key.
I recommend using the results for back to school night to suggest any areas parents should work with their children. The writing task is a great resource for the end of the school year to reflect on how well each students writing has improved.
Happy Teaching =)
