I created this resource because I am a special education teacher, and I was looking for ways to help my students with learning disabilities continually practice skills we are learning in math. I also wanted a way to monitor their progress throughout the year to help me write more specific IEP goals that would target their areas of need. I couldn’t find any progress monitoring probes that were a mixture of different skills from the Common Core, so I decided to make one! Here’s what you get in this bundle:
1. 36 progress monitoring data probes, enough for one per week for a whole school year
2. Answer Keys for each probe
3. A reproducible chart to help you track which standards the students are mastering
Each probe contains 16 questions which cover the following Common Core Standards:
K.CC.2 – Count forward from a given number
K.CC.3 – Read and write numbers using base ten numerals from 0 to 20.
K.CC.4 – Understand the relationship between numbers and quantities; connect counting to cardinality.
K.CC.6 – Use matching or counting strategies to identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less than, or equal to the number of objects in another group, up to 10 objects per group.
K.CC.7 – Compare two numbers between 1 and 10 presented as written numeral using “greater than,” “less than,” or “equal to.”
K.OA.1 – Represent addition and subtraction with objects, fingers, mental images, simple drawings, or sounds.
K.OA.2 – Solve addition and subtraction word problems within 10. Use objects or drawings to represent the problem.
K.OA.5 – Fluently add and subtract using numbers within 5.
K.NBT.1 – Compose and decompose numbers from 11-19 into tens and some further ones.
K.MD.2 – Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has more of/less of the attribute, and describe the difference.
K.G.2 – Correctly name shapes regardless of their orientations or size.
