Product Description
It's difficult to prepare for Universal Screener benchmark testing when you don't know the formats of the tests. Often, students struggle more with the format than the actual skills and content that are being tested. With this in mind, I have created PowerPoints to help interventionists and teachers prepare their Kindergarten and 1st grade students for the most common Universal Screeners. Please read below to make sure these are a good fit for what your district is using before buying.

Each of the following PowerPoints contains the most common Universal Screener assessments given at that grade level, and includes the times of year when each assessment is most often used. Each PowerPoint is set up to be simple to navigate. You begin the PowerPoint (press the F5) button, after which you can click on the titles of assessments on the Table of Contents page (one of these is pictured in the TPT preview) to jump to a particular one. Every slide has a link at the bottom right which allows you to jump back to the Table of Contents. Projecting these onto a screen and using a wireless mouse or wireless pointer will probably be helpful to you when you present this to your class, although it can also be done from your regular computer keyboard and mouse. Just press the right arrow key or your left-click mouse button to move to the next slide or animated part of the slide. Once you get the feel of it, this is a great way to keep your students interested while you go over these skills.

Because these PowerPoints show you the format of various Universal Screeners, going through them with your students will help you see where they struggle, which will help guide your instruction.

Here's what you get:
