Common Core Math Assessments and some FREEBIES!!

Well, our state has adopted the Common Core Standards.  Our kindergarten and first grade are in full implementation this coming year.  Second grade is in a transition year where we will teach the Common Core along with some of our existing GLEs, then we will be just common core next year.

We are also starting a new teacher accountability process---soooooo, needless to say, I'm a little overwhelmed (not to mention, we are still trying to get settled in our rent house--which is one box shy of being featured on the hoarders show!!!).  It is my understanding that since our first graders did not take a standardized test last year (to give us a starting point), that we have to give a pretest to our kiddos right off the bat.

So, I'm working on some math assessments to coordinate with the common core standards for math.  I have a pretest/posttest (10 questions), 1-2 practice sheets, class assessment chart, individual student graphs, and a checklist for each standard (well, I've only done 2.OA so far), and would love for another second grade teacher to look it over for some good criticism.  I really want someone who will give it to me straight!
