This is the assessment tool I use with my kindergarten class. It includes 4 separate PDF files to be used at the beginning of the year as well as the end of each trimester.
This tool is aligned with general kindergarten norms, and progresses to add additional skills throughout the year.
Also included is a self portrait page, handwriting/number writing grids and fine motor (tracing and cutting) skills.
These assessments make conferencing with parents or other teachers a breeze, as they are teacher friendly and easy for parents to read. Students love being able to look back at their assessment from the beginning of the year to see the progress they have made.
Each assessment takes approx. 5 min per student.
Skills assessed throughout the year:
-Tracing and Cutting
-Addition and Subtraction
-Sorting and Classifying
