Number Bonds

I really like this idea from the blog A Place For All-Star Ideas. I would like to use it with my first graders-it has so many possibilities!

Assessments for Math

This is such a crazy, busy time of year!  Sorry for the late post.  Attached are two assessments that were created by my teammate, Kim.  I did the Counting Assessment first.  One of the Common Core objectives is to be able to count and start at any number.  This assessment will help me pinpoint who I need to pull for small group instruction.

The second assessment is called Combination Assessment.  I used this one with my students who did well on other paper/pencil beginning of the year assessments.  I want to be able to differentiate my instruction for those students.  If they understand the compliments or number bonds of 5-I should be searching for the number they do not know.  This assessment will help me do that.
