I really wasn't planning on being very specific for conferences next week. All my kids are right on target and ready for K. My school has no formal assessment criteria, so I'm pretty much on my own. But now I am seeing I need something substantial to talk about with parents. Any ideas on how I can quickly assess a few academic skills so I can be more specific? I've avoided anything too formal because I really don't want to make the children feel like they are being tested. The social/emotional part I've got down...But parents might want to know how many letter sounds they've mastered. Can you tell I'm a first timer?
