This product has everything you need for assessing GOLD Teaching Strategies for the Blue Band (Pre-K, 4-5 year olds). Included in this product are printables, data tables, schedules, checklists, at a glance cards, observation recording sheets, assessments, recording sheets, and even EDITABLE files so you can easily add student names to assessment and recording sheets.
Items included in this product:
Suggested Assessment Schedule by Quarter
This includes a chart of which quarter to assess the GOLD objectives. I print it and keep it in my data notebook.
Quarterly Assessment Checklists
This includes charts for each quarter that are a broken down into what objectives you need to assess each quarter. I print each chart and check off the objective after I enter data into GOLD, and then I highlight the objectives after I checkpoint in GOLD. It helps keep me organized on what data I've already input.
Observation Checklists Organized by Domain
This includes checklists for each domain. It is EDITABLE so you can add your class list of student names. If you need to input data weekly for each child, you'll want to print these Observation Checklists to keep you organized. Put the Checklists on a clipboard to record your daily student observations. You can check it off or write the date on the Checklists.
Observation Sheets Organized by Student
Record your observations in one place. These sheets have a place for a date, and room to jot down an observation, so you can later enter it into the GOLD website. Use the Objective Cards and Observation Cards so you can put a GOLD objective number with your observation. File your observations in your data notebook by student.
Objective Cards at a Glance
These cards include all objectives, indicators, and rating scales from the blue band (Pre-k, 4-5 year olds). Print, laminate, hole punch in the corner, and put them on a ring. Place the Objective Cards around your room near various centers for easy observations and reference, for either you or your aide.
Observation Cards at a Glance
These cards are little different from the Objective Cards. These Observation Cards have some of the GOLD examples and indicators listed on them, and will help you with what to look for/what is most commonly seen in Pre-K.
Assessment Sheets by Objective
You'll want to print one of each of the Assessment Sheets for your data notebook binder. These are EDITABLE to add student names to each objective. Each page has a different objective with all indicators listed with the rating scale. You can easily assess an objective for your whole class and see where you've graded each student at for each quarter. It makes it easy when it comes time for report cards because you have everything you need on one paper when you go to checkpoint in GOLD.
Basic Assessments and Recording Sheets
Included: uppercase and lowercase letters, letter sounds, numbers 0-20, and 2D and 3D shapes assessments, and recording sheets.
