Free Assessments and a Giveaway!

Where does time go? We can't believe our year is almost over. Boohoo! Just when you get your babies trained really well, it is time to give them up. We spend the first 6 weeks of kindergarten wishing we could have our babies from the previous year back. We always forget how well we get them trained by the end of the year.

Can you believe it is already time for us to enter grades for the 3rd Nine Weeks? What is crazy is that we conduct formative assessments all the time. However, a couple weeks before we have to enter grades, we scramble because we decide our checklists, individual conference forms, journal entries, and work samples, may not be enough to prove to parents that their child Meets or Does Not Meet the Standard.

So, we get busy making one more final assessment to test these new skills.  Below are a couple of assessments for some Common Core Language Arts Standards that we just created.

If you are like us and just need ONE--- MORE--- ASSESSMENT to make SURE your kiddos meet the standard, feel free to click on it and grab.

If you don't need anymore assessments, you could also use these for formative assessments and/or extra practice.

K.RFS.3 (d) - Distinguish between similarly spelled words by identifying the sounds of the letters that differ.

K.RL.9 - Compare and Contrast the adventrues and experiences of characters in familiar stories.
K.RIT.9 - Identify basic similarities in and differences between two texts on the same topic.
