This diagnostic assessment will help you determine exactly which foundational reading skills your emerging readers have under control and which ones they don't. This assessment is designed to assess 16 different phonological awareness skills from most foundational (easiest) to the least foundational (more difficult) covering skills in the Kindergarten and First Grade Reading Foundational Skills standards. Phonological awareness skills are essential for reading development as students become proficient in manipulating sounds auditorily, they become better able to recognize familiar and predicable speech and language patterns when reading orally.
This assessment, which I also like to call a "digger deeper assessment" can be used after universal screening to determine an appropriate foundational reading intervention in the area of phonological awareness. This assessment can also be administered to all K & 1st grade students at the Beginning (BOY), Middle (MOY) and End (EOY) to measure phonological awareness growth of your entire class or grade level.
This product includes the assessment itself which is front/back, and directions for administration as well as teacher talking directions. This assessment is a stand-alone product and may be used with any phonological awareness program, curriculum, basal or resources you are currently using, but it is 100% aligned to the Hello Two Peas Phonological Awareness curriculum--a year long program of phonological awareness instruction done by the classroom teacher for 10 minutes a day, every day of the year. In addition, we are proud to say that our Two Peas PA Curriculum is endorsed and adopted district wide in 3 school districts, 12 schools, and thousands of classrooms across the United States. Our curriculum can be purchased in a yearly bundle or as monthly sets.
