This is a 10-page Word document that can be edited to suit your needs. Please ensure that your margins are set to 0.5 when printing. For each monthly unit of study, the Essential question and Focus questions are typed at the top of each checklist. You simply write your students' names on the left column. Then you can enter a date or "week of...." at the top. You can use the focus questions or come up with your own questions for informal assessments of language, vocabulary, concept development, understanding, new learning, etc. This was a useful document to share with families during Parent teacher conferences. Student responses were insightful to how their language and vocabulary developed from the beginning of a unit to the end and from the beginning of the year to the end. This was a great form of informal assessment which could be administered in small groups, during centers, during quiet time, etc.
