The beginning of the year is always a BUSY time. Each year I have wanted to assess my students, but never had the perfect resource to do it. I always ended up with haphazard papers and notes. This little pack is the perfect, and simple solution for my firsties, and I hope it will work for yours as well! This could also be used for end of the year Kinders!
These fun, bright and colourful assessment mats are simple and easy to use. During your mini-conference with the student, they will have the opportunity to show you what they know in many areas including:
- printing their name
- copying a simple sentence
- listening to oral directions (targets knowledge of shape, colour, quantity, size and position)
- letter sounds
- blending cvc words
- pre-primer sight words
- primer sight words
- number recognition 1-20
- addition and subtraction facts (using manipulatives)
While they are following the mats, you have a straightforward sheet to record their data. This will be really useful to you as you create groupings in your class, write report cards, and, of course, it will help INFORM your teaching. This tool leads you to differentiate to your students' needs!
