Not More Assessments! Don't Panic!!!

Where does the summer go? Feels like I just put everything away in my classroom and now it’s time to get it all out. Beach memories will make it be ok! So now it’s time to think about the data!
Don’t panic! is here to help! There is a wonderful resource to help with getting and keeping the math data – Math Instant Assessments for Data Tracking. Sounds like a mouth full of a title, but it’s packed a lot into the almost 100 pages. Wonderfully aligned with the CCS. It is divided into the five domains for math – counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, number operations in base ten, measurement and data, and geometry. That way you can concentrate on the area you need.

The book gives you lots of information too about the assessments, types of assessments and how to use it and the different components in it. It has exit tickets, unit tests, traditional assessments and prompt cards. This will be awesome to use to help form small math groups. I love the prompt cards and the exit tickets – can use them in their math journals too. So much to incorporate into the day. I love when things can do double duty! Anything to make life easier – right??
Now I know some of my little ones will have trouble reading the pages, especially in the beginning of the year and knowing their numbers beyond 10 to start with, but we will get there together. That’s just the kids I teach. So I will pick and choose what we can do in the beginning and use what I can. That’s the best part of kindergarten – all that GROWTH!

So don’t fret about going back to school. @carsondellosa is there to help out! You will track that data and use it to move those students forward! I participate in the Brand Ambassador Program for Carson-Dellosa and have received this product for free to review.
