End of Unit Assessment
This is the end of the unit and a great time to gather information about what your child has learned. I definitely do not recommend any kind of paper or pencil type of test for this age! I would just keep some notes or a checklist of the concepts your child has mastered and ones you need to further review. I would let your child play or read with them and informally assess these objectives by asking questions or observing.
1. Match 2-and 3-dimensional objects in the environment and in play situations.
2. Sort and classify similar 2- and 3-dimensional objects in the environment and play situations.
3. Identify, name, create and describe common 2-d shapes like circles, triangles, rectangles and squares.
4. Identify, name and describe 3-d objects using child’s own vocabulary.
Life Science Unit
1. Identify common needs (food, air, water) of familiar living things.
2. Begin to differentiate between real and pretend.
3. Observe and begin to recognize the ways that environments support life by meeting the needs of each organism (plant/soil, birds/air, fish/water).
4. Match familiar adult family members, plants and animals with their young.
5. Recognize physical differences among the same class of people, plants, or animals (dogs come in many sizes and colors).
