This product is a quick and easy way to check progress after teaching a kindergarten Journeys lesson.
I wanted to be able to check what my students had learned after I taught a weekly lesson. I also did not want to add 'one more thing' to my plate. That is when I decided to create this product.
Quick Checks can be administered to your whole class at one time and the best part is-- it can be done in under 10 minutes! For each lesson students will write the letter of the week (in order to make sure they are using proper letter formation), identify the letter of the week, identify the sound of the letter, and complete some phonics/phonemic awareness questions tied to the lesson. Some grammar skills are included as well.
These checks are geared towards beginning of the year kindergarten students. For the first 3 lessons there are only 4 questions. The questions are identified using a picture instead of a number just in case you have students that do not yet know their numbers. The number of questions increases to 6 per lesson with lessons 4 and 5.
This pack includes:
- One Quick Check for lessons 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
- An identical pre-assessment for each lesson 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 if you want to be able to track progress.
- An instruction sheet for the teacher for lessons 1-5
- An answer key for each lesson 1-5
Please note that my district uses the 2012 version of Journeys which from my understanding is almost identical to the new version.
