Alphabet Assessment


Alphabet Assessment

You can either mark through the letters the children know with a highlighter or make a checkmark beside the letters with a pen. Use a different color highlighter or different color pen for each semester’s assessment. You can use this one sheet for a child for the whole year, and show a comparison of their progress with the different colors.

Math Assessment

Use the colored highlighters or pens mentioned above on this sheet also. For the color assessment, show children pieces of construction paper. I cut them into squares about 4 inches and staple them into a flip book. For the counting assessment, I have children count Unifix cubes.

    You are a life saver. I have worked with children for a few years, but this is a new experience for me to work with pre-k as the lead teacher. I had a few ideas of how to get organized and how to build their portfolios. Now I have a lot better picture of what I need to do when school starts. Just wanted to say thank you for making this site.

    Hi! I was looking at your progress report and noticed that you had “N/A” marked for “answering story questions” for the month of December. Don’t assume children couldn’t answer questions about stories at the ages of 4 and 5. I have students who are awesome at answering story comprehension questions! With this being the age of Common Core, students need to be challenged and pushed to think at a higher level. Just giving my 2 cents! I enjoy your website and visit it often!

      Hi Stacy, I’ve always done story comprehension all year long, including retelling stories and answering questions about stories. This is a progress report from my previous school, and we just simply did not assess that (and a few other things) during the month of December. I definitely know they are capable of doing it; it was simply left off to not overwhelm teachers during the first assessment time. You are welcome to adjust the progress report to your needs.
