This assessment pack is what we use beginning January. The first couple of weeks are similar to what we were doing when we left before the break. Then we increase the words, add more spelling, and writing sentences. Numbers are increase for counting and addition is added into the assessments.
The assessments are given weekly and sent home for review. Assessment time is a great time to conference with your students since the reading portion is done 1/1... you can give them praises and suggestions to improve the next week. These are benchmarks to keep students moving toward their goal of being ready to be an independent first grader when they leave in the spring. I've included answer keys for spelling words, and a larger print reading page to use to do your running record. This helps some students who need to see things larger. (Please check out my study folders as they have similar stories to practice during the week so students are ready to read on assessment day.)
Reading, sight words, sound out words, spelling, word families, writing basic sentences, counting, adding, subtraction, working with 10s, common assessments.
