Use this mini-assessment formatively or summatively to guide instruction of common core standard 2.NBT.1:
Understand that the three digits of a three-digit number represent amounts of hundreds, tens, and ones; e.g., 706 equals 7 hundreds, 0 tens, and 6 ones. Understand the following as special cases: 100 can be thought of as a bundle of ten tens — called a “hundred.” The numbers 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 refer to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 hundreds (and 0 tens and 0 ones).
Simply print and let students complete. I score these 1-4 and use this information to guide flexible math groupings. These problems are appropriate for the first instructional period of second grade, with a 1 indicating 'not meeting standard', 2 indicating 'working towards standard', 3 indicating 'meeting standard' and 4 indicating 'exceeding standard.' The problems increase in difficulty, allowing you to appropriately scaffold instruction.
