Tomorrow I begin my new job teaching at a church preschool 2 mornings a week! I have lots of mixed emotions, but my organized, planning self has kicked in and I've been preparing for the past few days. One of the things I really wanted to do is get a good idea what skills my kids are bringing with them. Since this is a mixed age group (3s & 4s), I know ability levels are going to be very spread out. I had a lot of trouble finding a good benchmark assessment online that fit what I was looking for (basic kindergarten readiness skills), so I decided to create my own! I wanted to share it with you all in case you have a need for it. I plan on going back and reassessing a various points (probably 3-4 times total) to see how they've grown over the course of the year. It would be great for you homeschoolers as well!
I'm not a very experienced blogger, so I had trouble figuring out how to go about making the Word document available. I finally settled on a Google Document (since that's all I could figure out! haha!), but the formatting is really messed up. If this looks like something you'd like to have, leave your e-mail in the comments section & I'll send you the Word Document!
