This is a quick and easy way to assess kindergarten students individually at the beginning of the year. This only focuses on the basic kindergarten skills, so it's useful at the beginning of the year as a tool to help place students in partnered or small groups. Use a different color pen, highlighter, etc. for each 9 week grading period to easily see the progress the student has made. Give students a blank page to read from, or use flashcards for each section as you record any errors. Colors, capital and lowercase letter identification, shapes, and numbers 0-30 are included.
