Since Counting & Cardinality is not listed in any grade other than Kindergarten, it is the major work of the grade. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on these skills to ensure that students have completely internalized the skill.
This pre-assessment can be used at the beginning of the year to see what knowledge your students are starting the year with. The included recording grid will help you organize your data so you can look at your class as a whole AND as individuals.
Included in this download is a one page (when copied front and back) assessment for students, teacher directions for administering the assessment, a recording grid and answer key.
