Though many K-2 teachers will argue the reasoning behind giving a standardized test to a young child, we accept that educational mandates require us to do so. We also must acknowledge that such tests not only test Common Core Skills, but also skills that may not be required by Common Core at the Kindergarten level. The four areas highlighted in this packet are designed to help students to prepare for questions that may or may not be on the test in the areas of time, money, calendar skills, and patterning. It is also meant to help students learn about bubbling in a circle—NOT coloring the pictures on the test, OR writing their names, etc., anywhere on the official booklet.
This packet includes:
1 Can I bubble? Yes I Can! (bubbling practice and test instructions
in child friendly terms)
2 Money Assessments
2 Time Assessments
2 Calendar Assessments
2 Patterning Assessments
Practice sheets to teach before giving assessments are included at the end of the packet.
An answer Key is provided for the patterning pages.
This is what I will be doing to help my kiddos prepare for the big test! Keep following my store for the new ELA Standardized Test Practice coming soon!
This packet is suitable for 1st grade as a means to prepare them for bubbling on a standardized test.
