Common Core Aligned ELA Skill Checks!!

Okay Okay!  After many requests I have compiled 30 ELA skill checks aligned to the Common Core!  Thousands have downloaded the Math Skill Checks… so I made it my mission to put these together.    Because they are made by a teacher they are easy to follow and understand for the kiddos!  So many companies don’t realize the oral language/listening skills it takes for a 5 year to take a test!  I have set up my skill checks so they can be followed very easily for the kiddo.  I have separated each question and the question is labeled with a picture rather than a number.  The Skill Checks get progressively harder as the year goes on.   See an example of Skill Check #1 below along with the teacher instructions.

The packet sells for $10 in my Tpt store….however, they are on sale for $8 until end of the day Tuesday the 4th! Click below to view!
