This simple assessment booklet is a relatively quick way to assess the KINDERGARTEN MATH common core standards. The booklet contains a problem to address each standard.
The content is printed at the top and repeated at the bottom of each page (so that when you print the booklet you will have 2 sets). Staple the booklet on the left side (top /bottom) and cut it in half. Each kindergarten math standard is indicated by number (a reference sheet of all the kindergarten math standards is included). A name line is included on each page so you can use the pages individually, a few pages at a time or the entire booklet.
Use the booklet to pre-assess the skills at the beginning of the year, as a quick pre-test of a particular skill, to check for understanding after doing intervention with students or to show growth (by using the booklet again at the end of the year).
I created this booklet as a common core math standards pre-test (students try a few pages each day during the first weeks of school) and post-test (students complete the booklet again at the end of the year). With the new standards, teachers are being asked to show evidence of growth. This booklet will help teachers show how much their students have grown in math. Let the students see their pre and post tests to celebrate their math growth!!
*Some items must be evaluated one/one. A dotted frame around these items indicates that the teacher must meet with individuals to assess these items (i.e. count to 100).
NOTE: This booklet is not intended to be a comprehensive assessment of each standard. Please download the preview file so you can see EACH question and decide if this assessment booklet will meet your needs.
BONUS: The file includes a SECOND copy of the booklet. When possible, the problems have been changed to offer you a second set of questions. This copy could be used a few pages at a time to check for understanding throughout the year.
BONUS: This file includes a THIRD copy of the booklet. In this version, the items that need to be assessed one on one are listed first so you can make a booklet of these pages and a booklet of the written items.
