Fun with Numbers 0-20 and Beyond Assessment - Section 3: Summarize Data

This unit and assessment address some skills that are not specific kindergarten standards under the common core. I believe that I have an obligation to stretch my students by exposing them to instruction that will prepare them for future math learning in first grade and beyond. I feel comfortable in doing this since my students have mastered so many of the kindergarten standards.

It is important that we step outside the world of our kindergarten standards and look vertically for how we can prepare students to be successful after they leave our classroom. This requires getting familiar with standards of other grade levels. Often times, teachers cannot express what is covered in subsequent years. I believe it is a professional obligation to familiarize ourselves with the standards of all grade levels so we can help prepare our students for what lies ahead and also engage in thoughtful conversations about math instruction. Once you know your standards, I encourage teachers to look ahead and think about instruction and vocabulary that will help students be successful in the years to come.

# Fun with Numbers 0-20 and Beyond Assessment

Lesson 21 of 21

## Objective: Students will be able to demonstrate their ability to work with numbers 0-20 and greater.

## Big Idea: The students have had the opportunity to work with numbers in many different ways. It is now time to assess the learning that has taken place!

*25 minutes*

#### Group Assessment

*20 min*

For this assessment, you will need a copy of the Fun with Number Assessment, included as a PDF. I typically try to use individual assessments whenever possible, but for this unit, I only did a group assessment. I just did not have enough time or assistance in my classroom to assess the many elements that were covered during this unit. The only thing I assessed individually for the every student was rote counting to 100.

I have the students take their "testing positions" in the classroom. They each have an assigned assessment spot that keeps them from looking at their neighbor's paper. I read each question aloud for the students and circulate around the room while the students are working (see video). I take notes on which students may need to be pulled and given a quick one-on-one assessment based on their answers. Upon completion of the test, the students turn them in. I quickly check to make sure that all questions have been answered.

#### Summarize Data

*5 min*

After the students complete the assessment, I use the Fun with Numbers Assessment Summary Sheet to summarize the data I gathered from the tests. This sheet gives me a quick snapshot of who needs reteaching and allows me to organize my math differentiated groups to meet the needs of my students.

Keli-Counting backwards is a Minnesota State Standard, but it really should be included in any kindergarten math curriculum. It is foundational for learning how to "count back" when subtracting. If you don't want to do a specific lesson on counting backwards, just make sure to include it throughout the day in your classroom. Count back from 10 or 20 when you are transitioning, waiting in line etc. Thanks for stopping by BetterLesson!

I am confussed by the assessment vs. the standards for KCCA.1 Counting by ones and tens. Do some states require Kinders to count backwards from 10 and 20, as well as counting to 100 by 5's? I am interested in hearing what other states require on this common core standard.
