These are great to have in your classroom from the beginning of the year to help track your students’ progress!

***

In my classroom, I like to collect data!

I like to do this without making my students feel like they are just taking tests all the time. In order to help me assess my students and save time, I created these ?quick checks.? Each of these assessments are no more than 3 questions long and they all align directly to a 1st grade Common Core Standard.

I give my students these quick checks at different times throughout the year. Before teaching a concept/standard I will give a quick-check as a pre-assessment. After teaching the concept, I will give the same quick-check as a post-assessment.

For my struggling students, I also use these quick-checks to re-assess as needed throughout the year.

I find that these quick assessments are short, but also precise! They let me check in on my students? progress without taking up too much time! It?s a win-win for me and my students!

In this unit:

– How I use these checklists and quick-checks in my own classroom

– Mastery checklists to record scores for each student and each standard

– Progress checks: more in-depth recording sheets for each student and each standard

– Quick check assessments for each of the following Common Core Standards:

**Phonics:**

1.RF.2a: Distinguish long from short vowel sounds in spoken single-syllable words.

1.RF.2b: Orally produce single-syllable words by blending sounds (phonemes), including consonant blends.

1.RF.2d: Segment spoken single-syllable words into their complete sequence of individual sounds (phonemes).

1.RF.3a: Know the spelling-sound correspondences for common consonant digraphs.

1.RF.3b: Decode regularly spelled one-syllable words.

1.RF.3c: Know final -e and common vowel team conventions for representing long vowel sounds.

1.RF.3d: Use knowledge that every syllable must have a vowel sound to determine the number of syllables in a printed word.

1.RF.3e: Decode two-syllable words following basic patterns by breaking the words into syllables.

1.RF.3f: Read words with inflectional endings.

1.RF.3g: Recognize and read grade-appropriate irregularly spelled words.
