An early assessment for Kindergarten is Concepts of Print (PC). I work in whole group and small group centers on this concept to prepare my class for the assessment.
At the beginning of the year, I always use the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear. The children love the colorful characters. I have made this Concepts of Print (PC) book to use along with the book, colors, and book and print awareness.
The Concepts of Print assessment measures the children's knowledge of basic print. What a fun way to introduce the concept with a fun read aloud Brown Bear, Brown Bear.
The booklet includes:
cover, front of book, directional, return sweep, meaning of the period, first and last part of the sentence and a word, match uppercase to lowercase letter, frame 1 letter, 2 letters, frame 1 word, 2 words, frame a capital letter.
The fun colorful characters in Brown Bear, Brown Bear are a great way to introduce Concepts of Print.
Just print pages, laminate and bind book together.
