    What do you use to assess your 3's and 4's classrooms? We use the Creative Curriculum, but since I only have the preschoolers 3x a week for a few hours I feel it is too much assessing. The report card that we are to give parents is all written out which seems like a lot of unnecessary work. I have a lot of pictures and think simple checklist might be easier for an assessment tool.

    We used a checklist for colors, print awareness, abc recognition, writing name, number recognition, writing numbers, etc.

    We kept a binder per kid with these checklists and would pull them out a few times a week for different kids. We would give one or more assessments and then record in their binder.

    assessment

    i am part of the 3 day a week creative curriculum program also (i teach 4-5 year olds). i am so bogged down on assessment notes for the curriculum; however, in the fall i assessed on colors, shapes, numbers 0-10, self portrait, etc. for my spring conferences i am assessing on drawing shapes (square, circle, diamond, etc.) opposite recognition, social skills, spatial skills (over, under, etc), patterning, sequencing, body part recognition, alphabet, and numbers up to 30. i started doing them in january (i have 19 kids) and do them about once a week. i have maybe 2 more days left of assessing and i will be done :) assessing is very much a pain but it is very exciting to see the growth my kids have made!!
