This download is the companion to my Kindergarten Assessment - Beginning of the Year. I created this assessment based on a list of first grade expectations the first grade teachers at my school gave the kindergarten teachers. I give this assessment at the end of the school year and use it during parent meetings if I need to recommend retention. I then send the assessment on to first grade so that each student's new teacher can have an idea of where each child is academically.
While I use this assessment at the end of kindergarten, it would also work well for the beginning of first grade.
This assessment was created for the kindergarten and 1st grade teachers at my school and follows our expectations for 1st grade. So this assessment may or may not work in your classroom. Please take a look at the skills assessed and see if this assessment would be beneficial for you.
