How can I assess the skills from the ELA Morning Work? ✏️
A lot of teachers use the ELA Morning Work as a consistent review of critical content. (You can read more about that here.) Teachers that have been using the ELA Morning Work had one simple request. They wanted a weekly assessment that mirrored the skills from the morning work, and could be used to give a quick assessment at the end of each week. Many teachers use the morning work as a daily warm-up or review to start the day. Some of the skills may have been introduced before, but other skills might require a super quick lesson. These teachers wanted a way to assess the skills practiced throughout the week. By giving a quick assessment at the end of the week, this holds students accountable for their learning and gives teachers a quick gauge for student learning. Plus, it’s a consistent weekly quiz grade that is short, sweet, and easy to grade. My favorite part! ??
The ELA Weekly Assessments are organized into the following sections that mirror the morning work:
- Vocabulary & Comprehension
- Text Structure
- Word Work
- Figurative Language
They are designed and aligned to work as a companion to the ELA Morning Work. Because I get a lot of questions about the morning work, I wanted to share some Frequently Asked Q & A.
Are the ELA Weekly Assessments available digital?
YES! They are in both a printable (pdf) and Google Forms format. As of June 14, 2020 we are working month by month to add a digital option for all grade levels. The digital updates will be available to previous buyers at no additional charge.
Are the Google Forms self-grading?
YES! They are in both a printable (pdf) and Google Forms format. As of June 14, 2020 we are working month by month to add a digital option for all grade levels. The digital updates will be available to previous buyers at no additional charge. They are also available in Google Forms. For the MOST part, these are self-grading. I get this question a LOT. The only questions that are not self-grading are with questions that are writing-specific. There aren’t very many of these throughout the year, so most weeks are self-grading. Since you can edit your copy of the Google Forms, you can make any changes to the question types.
What grade levels are available?
The ELA Weekly Assessments are available for Grades 2 – 8.
Can I try a free sample to see how it works?
Yes! You can download a free week of the ELA Weekly Assessments in both a print and digital format to see how it works.
