This product includes a great, easy to use assessment tool for the first grade Math Common Core State Standards.It includes:
- a 2 page (25 problems) assessment for "Numbers and Operations in Base 10"
-a 1 page (12 problems) assessment for "Operations and Algebraic Thinking"
- a 2 page (12 problems plus 2 graphing activities) assessment that combines "Geometry" & "Measurement & Data"
Also included is a 2 page "Notes & Explanations" detailing certain standards that were not included in the assessment and the reason behind leaving them out of the document. For example, several standards require the first graders to "explain" a concept, which (although first graders should be practicing content area writing such as math journaling) I determined it was not developmentally appropriate to expect first graders to WRITE a thorough explanation of their thinking to use as assessment of their understanding. Therefore, there are standards noted that students would be better able to "show what they know" using authentic assessment.
Despite the absence of several standards, the document is a fairly comprehensive tool,and the problems are challenging,in that they closely align with each standard and require the 'deep understanding" of math concepts expected in the CCSS. There are "traditional" math skill problems,word problems,multiple choice in which students need to determine what strategy would be best to use, and 2 graphing problems-one in which the students interpret given data on a bar graph and one in which students enter data from a data table and design their own questions.
Please take a look at the preview to see examples of the problems included!
This product would be a great tool to use periodically throughout the year, or at the beginning of second grade also, to determine which students need more help and/or to use as material as you plan your differentiated instruction.
An answer key is also included.
