I created these monthly assessments to use in my kindergarten classroom. They help me stay on track for meeting the PA Common Core Standards for Language Arts. These assessments packs have truly made my life simpler which is why I want to share this with everyone else!
In this pack there are eight assessments that meet the following standards:
CC.1.1.K.D: Know and apply grade level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words
C.C.1.1.K.D: Read grade level high frequency sight words with automaticity
CC.1.1.K.C: Demonstrate understanding of spoken words, syllables, and sounds
CC.1.2.K.I: With prompting and support identify basic similarities and differences between two texts
CC.1.1.K.D: Know and apply grade level phonics and word analysis skills in decoding words - letter sound correspondence
CC.1.3.K.A: With prompting and support, retell familiar stories including key details
CC.1.2.K.L/CC.1.3.K.L: Actively engage in group reading activities with purpose and understanding
CC.1.2.K.C: With prompting and support, make a connection between two individual, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text
Included in this pack is a "Score Sheet" where you can record how the students performed on each assessment.
Parent communication and involvement is important to me which is why I also included a form for parents. You will be able to easily inform parents which high frequency words and letter sounds a student may need extra practice with.
I'm not in your classroom so I do not know which books you already have. This is why I made the comprehension assessments to go along with any book you are reading or are planning to read.
One of my favorite aspects of this document is the cover page because it lists all the standards that will be assessed. In my school we are required to identify the standards we are teaching. To make my life easier I print the cover sheet and post it in my classroom. It also serves as a reference guide for planning.
I really hope you enjoy this product. Please contact me with any questions! Thanks!
