We've been working our way through assessments in kindergarten, preparing for the end of the year report cards. Sight words are just one small piece that we are assessing, but it's hard to take pictures of assessment! We have been checking kids' progress in letters, sounds, phonemic awareness, concepts of print, comprehension, number sense, probability, measurement, problem solving, communication, and MUCH more!
I am happy to report that kids are doing a great job! Our class tends to be quite strong in letters, sounds, and ability to use their letters and sounds in their writing. We are seeing kids use their sight word knowledge in reading and writing every day. It's so exciting to see such an academically strong group of kindergartners!
It's our job, as teachers, to use assessment to drive our instruction. There are a couple of areas that we have noticed, the class as a whole, tends to be a little weak in. Those are the areas we will really be focusing on in the few weeks we have left! We will be working on graphing and interpreting our graphs, and we will also be practicing our problem solving and communication in math.
We don't have many days left, but rest assured, we are using every minute of our time with your kids!
