A Peek Inside: Numeracy Assessments Binder

Hi friends!

Lots of people have been asking about how I organize my assessments so I wanted to share how I organize my numeracy assessments with you today!

I will be doing a post about my literacy assessment binder soon as well!

I use a nice big 3" binder for both my literacy and numeracy binders.


*You can find this cover in my teacher binder product here*

I keep these sheets in my inside cover. I have the kids make the numbers with small manipulative to assess creating numbers to 10 and 1:1 correspondence.


You can grab these sheets by clicking on the image below:


I keep all my manipulative that I need for my assessments handy in this clear pouch.  I'm pretty sure I bought it at Dollarama.  It includes number flashcards from 1-30, a number line, Canadian coin manipulative, pipe cleaners cut to various lengths (for ordering items by length) and a square and rectangle attribute blocks for comparing shapes.


My first two tabs are "Whole Class Data" and "Intervention Planning/Tracking".  Then each student gets a tab. I also have a tab at the back for PRIME since we are required to do PRIME testing twice a year.

These are the tabs I use.


If you want some editable tabs that match these dividers you can grab them for free by clicking on the image below:


Then each student gets a copy of my numeracy assessments:

Here is number sense for Term 1:


Measurement for term 1:


Geometry for term 1:


Patterning and data management for term 1:


 I also have these sheets for Term 2 for number sense, geometry, measurement and data management.

At the end of each student's assessment sheets I also add this general observations form to record anecdotal observations.


That's it! At the beginning of the year I carry my binder around with me and assess their number sense during centre time. After that I usually pick a specific expectation I plan to assess that week, make an assessment checklist or recording form and carry that around on my clipboard.

Once I gather my diagnostic data I use that to create my guided math groups and plan 2-3 intervention lessons based on the area of need.  I assess at the end of those lessons and record their growth or add lessons if we didn't meet the goal we were working towards.

I hope that makes sense! I do plan to do digital someday but I really like having it on paper for now.

If you are interested in these assessment sheets (which are aligned to the expectations in the new Ontario Kindergarten Program 2016) you can check them out in my TPT store by clicking on the image below:


I hope this gave you some ideas on organizing your numeracy assessments! Let me know in the comments if you have any thoughts or questions!

  2. Hi! Thanks for sharing this. I was taking a look at your long range plans and it shows that you do the alphabet for two weeks and then move on. What type of alphabet activities do you do? How do your students learn the alphabet that quickly?

    1. Hi! Well I guess the short answer is that they don't :) I continue to have centres open that expose the students to the alphabet and we pull guided groups to work on letter ID based on assessments. I do move on while group because I usually have many students who are ready for more. But I do adjust this too based on the group. For whole group alphabet activities we do things like read alouds, co-created alphabet posters and alphabet songs. I hope that helps!

  3. Hi! I teach a year 2/grade 1 split and bought this product for the kindergarten assessment and am now creating one for personal use for my grade 1 class. Ideally I'd like them to look the same, would you be willing to share what fonts you used to write the term and type of assessment. Thank you! Love your blog by the way so many good ideas!

    1. Hi! The fonts are KG Blank Space Solid (free on TPT for personal use) and Fontbox Loveluck (which you can purchase from Creative Market). Hope that helps!
