How Do I Know if They "GET IT"???? Beyond the WORKSHEETS! FREEBIE!

I teach MATH.
I "Think"
I teach math well.

BUT..

HOW  DO  I  KNOW  IF  THEY  "GET  IT"???

How do I know if they have mastered ( or internalized )
the concept,

BEFORE  THE  TESTING  BEGINS???



I mean...it's NOT..
I REPEAT...NOT
always about 

THE  TEST!

But.. my kiddos WANT to do well!

Even in First Grade
they KNOW!

They KNOW TESTS COUNT!

Whether or not we like tests or don't,

TESTS  COUNT!

And so..

How do I know if they are ready?




I have a district purchased math curriculum 
I am required to teach.

We use  Expressions.



I have a pacing guide from my district to use as a "tool"
to
Keep ME on track.

Mostly to ensure I have taught the required concepts for 
THE TEST!

I am NOT a fan of WASTED WORKSHEETS!

SOME...I LIKE!
SOME...I DON'T!

So ...now what?

I NEED DATA!

SHOW ME WHAT YOU KNOW!

And so..
THEY DO!

Here is my Lesson on
ADDITION using 3 digits:






So..  NOW  WHAT?

Now I have LOTS of DATA 
(Student information)
 to put students into

 guided MATH groups!

I have noted students who need scaffolding in:
number sense
subitizing
numbers beyond 10
addition
grouping numbers
writing numbers
expanding numbers
place value
shape recognition

AND ALL OF THIS..

with 2 pieces of white paper & some crayons!

But...  
in the next few weeks

when we

"TEST"

My kiddos will "GET IT"!

I know they will!
