This package is ideal for assessing the skills of a new tutoring student in grades 1-3. Use it at the beginning of your tutoring to get a better idea of the student's current skills so that you know where to start and can decide how to best help them grow. Continue assessing throughout your tutoring to measure growth. Keep in mind that with so many topics/skills in this assessment, it is more about breadth than depth to give you a quick snapshot of skills. Classroom teachers may find this helpful when assessing new students! Here's what is included:
- 1 writing skills checklist
- Narrative writing prompt
But wait, why would I buy an elementary writing assessment from a high school history teacher? Well, I have been moonlighting as an elementary tutor for the past 14 years - basically I couldn't decide whether to major in elementary or secondary education because I love all ages! So I have combined all of the simple writing assessments that I have found success with into one package to share with you!
