Kindergarten Readiness Assessment
 
Does any use a great, simple kindergarten readiness assessment they would be willing to share?

I have so many versions, and I dislike them all. Before I sit down and create a new one for next year, I figured I'd reach out to this group.

Thanks!

Have you checked your local school district website?

My area district lists everything the Kinders should know/master before entrance to school.

our schools use Brigance. it's not bad, but it's... strange in some places. like reciting the alphabet: it should be recited, song doesn't count, and if a child sings, we are to interrupt the singing and ask to say it.
as far as I understand, state provided our DC with the tools to administer it.
I ain't doin' it.

I have and I've attended the trainings, but they just give a few examples of expectations. I also taught K forever. I'm just being terribly lazy and I'm looking for a nicely formatted one ;).

I used this when I first started teaching and didn't love it. I don't blame you for not wanting to use it!
