Do you ever feel the need to check in with your kiddos to see if they are mastering the math you are teaching? This is a great informal assessment tool that takes 1-2 minutes from start to finish. It's also a blast and loved by all in the classroom (teachers and students). The title on each sheet is, Can you beat your teacher? The students think they are racing you. The beauty of this is you the teacher can go as slow as you'd like. The purpose of these check ups are to check for understanding, however the students think it's just a fun race to beat the teacher. Usually you'll mostly be letting the entire class beat you. You just want to see what they can do and if they are understanding concepts. It is a class favorite and jump up cheer aloud when they beat their teachers time to finish.
These check ups cover all the standards for first grade.
