Product Description
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 5th 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 4th 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.

***Please note that these printables are not meant to be an extensive review of all the 4th 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.***
