FREE MISC. LESSON - “Preschool Assessment_Freebie”

by Faith4lly Homemade
Pre-Kindergarten


I use this as a guide when assessing my preschooler. I'm a homeschool mom, but this would also be helpful for any preschool teacher. I use this as a "check off list" to assess what I want my preschooler to know by the end of the year. It is a great way for me to assess what still needs to be taught/practiced. This download will come in a .zip file. It will contain an excel spreadsheet that is completely editable so you can customize it to fit your needs. I hope you find it useful!

This .zip file includes:
1 - cover page
1 - excel spreadsheet with assessment
1 - thank you page
