    This is my first teaching job in 5th grade. We start school on Tuesday. The other teachers and I decided not to start lesson 1 in our reading series until the following week because we have beginning of the year assessments to give. For math, the other two teachers are piloting a new program so I am stuck with the old one. What should I do the first days of school to see where my kids are in math? Does anyone have any worksheets or educational games that they do?

    You can pretest them in math, too. What series do you use? I may can help you with this.

    We use Harcourt. Do you have a culamative test or an end of year test that came with the book? You could even use an end of year 4th grade test. Look on edhelper, too.
