This resource is printable.
These assessments were created to help you maximize time and improve your instruction. The more we know about our student's current level of understanding, the more we can tailor our lessons to their needs.
They were created with the beginning of first grade in mind. However, after thousands of teachers asked for "more," this pack grew to include middle and end of the year standards as well. Each assessment has a "number correct" space on the bottom and a tracking page. You can use these pages to make each student as "below level," "on level" or "above level." Because each district and state is different, this is something you'll want to discuss with whoever you plan with or use your state standards as a guide.
There are two types of assessments in this resource. For some of the assessments, students will just need to identify/recognize the words or numbers. For the other assessments, they will have to generate the answer on their own.
If the assessments use clipart, I've included a color and a black and white version. You might choose to play the colored version in a sheet protector for multiple students to use as a sort of "quick check" or "exit" when a mini-lesson is over. The black and white copies provide great documentation for showing a student's growth or areas of need. Currently, each one of these standards comes with one assessment.

The following pages can be used in two ways.
1. Use the word lists I provided to give spelling tests to students. I've included one spelling sheet with 15 spaces so that you can choose the words which are most applicable.
2. Use the word lists as a quick check of their ability to read words with the phonics patterns quickly and accurately.
