I also thought I would give a little info on how I test some of the other items that do not have corresponding assessment forms.
Counting with 1:1 Correspondence: I observe students while they count counters that I have placed out on the table. Do they touch each object, giving it a number as they count?
Uses Positional Words: I used a small block and a bowl. I then asked to students to put the block 'inside' the bowl, 'between' the bowl and my hand (I would place my hand on the table), hold the block over the bowl... and so on.
Sorting: I use attribute buttons to assess sorting. You could also use the family bear counters (the counters with 3 sizes of bears in different colors), accompanied with pattern blocks (for sorting by shape). I simply ask students "Put these into piles by color."
Patterning: Pattern blocks are a great tool to access patterning. I use the same attribute buttons from sorting. I first start a pattern and ask them to finish it. You could also use a patterning worksheet to assess this skill.
Scissor Skills: I use scissor skills practice sheets. Session 1 we do straight lines, session 2 curved lines and session 3 zig zag lines. As far as the recording sheet goes... mark correct if finger and hand positioning are correct. Mark finger, if not grasping scissors correctly with fingers. Mark hand if hold scissors upside down (thumb is not up).
* I save these cutting samples and put in each student's file*
Orders Object by Size: Give students any 3 objects that can be lined up by size. Specify if you would like them lined up from small to large or big to little. The family counting bears are good to access this.
Seq. events in order: Use premade sequencing games or find a practice page that sequences with 3 scenes.
Sequence numbers 1-10: Use the number recognition form found on the printables page. Have student cut apart numbers and glue in order onto a sentence strip.
*Save and put in each student's file*
Shows knowledge of Rhyming: Give students an example of a rhyming word pair, "Cat and hat rhyme. Can you think of something else that rhymes with cat? Can you think of a word that rhymes with 'done'?
I hope you find this information useful and that it makes your life a little bit easier!
