Do you have the same questions when the new school year rolls around: Where are my students at? Are they working at grade level expectations? Above? Below? This packet will help answer some of those questions!
This unit contains 10 printables (5 math and 5 language) that are designed to act as a pre-assessment for students entering 3rd grade. Provide one math and one language printable to your students each day during the first week of school and you will have a good idea of where your students are at, based on their knowledge of the 2nd grade Common Core State Standards.
Each printable is labeled with the specific standards it covers, as well as “I can” statements for each section, in order to show what knowledge or skills students should be demonstrating.
The printables included are:
*Addition & Subtraction – Addition & subtraction within 20, addition of four two-digit numbers, addition & subtraction within 1, 000, repeated addition, using addition & subtraction to solve word problems.
*Place Value – Listing the number of hundreds, tens & ones in a number, skip-counting, representing numbers, comparing numbers, mentally adding or subtracting 10 or 100 to or from a number.
*Measurement – Telling time to the nearest five minutes, representing sums & differences on a number line, solving word problems involving lengths & money.

***Please note that these printables are not meant to be an extensive review of all the 2nd grade standards. Rather, these pages are a condensed review of topics, designed to give you a general understanding of where your new students are at, based on the previous grade’s standards. This is meant to save you time and help facilitate planning so that you are not re-teaching concepts the students already excel at, or rushing through topics on which students may need some extra practice.***
