#MarkdownMonday - Week of August 7th

Each Monday, a variety of TpT sellers will be drastically reducing prices on ONE item in their stores!  

Just type #markdownmonday and you'll find a wide range of great deals!

Since it's back to school season, I've reduced the price of my "How We Get Home Backpack Labels" to only $1.00 at MY TPT STORE!  

These are perfect for tagging little ones during the first weeks of school and I've used these for years (and updated the selection over time).  Just print, laminate, hole punch, and zip tie to backpacks!  

I place these in a container and tag students' backpacks during orientation or during the first day when I greet parents.  This has been especially helpful with kinders who can sometimes be shy or unsure of themselves.  

Hope you enjoy!!

KINDERGARTEN SCREENING ASSESSMENT

Summer is going by so quickly and I was given the joyous responsibility to create an assessment for our incoming kindergarten students!  Knowing that time is limited, but that we need data to sort students fairly, I've created an assessment to measure some of the basics for our students: 

For READING:
* Uppercase Letters
* Lowercase Letters
* Letter Sounds
* Sight Words
* Writing Your Name

For MATH:
* Counting to 100 (no chart...just counting orally)
* Counting by Tens
* Identifying Numbers 0 - 20
* Counting Objects 
* Writing Numbers to 25
* Addition 
* Subtraction

I've included a data sheet as well, so wish me luck!  This is our first time sorting students in advance with ACTUAL DATA!  I'm excited!!

I've also slowwwwwly moving toward changes in my product covers!  I'm pretty proud, but this took entirely too long to make...and then it was too big to upload to TPT!  Ugh!
