In education, teachers use pretests to determine what objectives need to be taught and post-tests to evaluate whether the concepts were learned.
Scroll down to see assessment learning checklists that help determine what a child knows and, as a result, which of the 5 ABCJesusLovesMe Curricula to use.
All checklists are based upon the curriculum's academic objectives, which details what concepts the curriculum introduces to the child.
Use to determine the level of academic learning that has occurred. I suggest that the child know at least 75% of each section of the checklist before moving to the next curriculum. If your child seems to be in between two different curricula, I would suggest that you fall back to the curriculum that is a step below.
Do not approach these as a test or call them a test. Strictly use these for your benefit to know what areas of learning still need to be addressed.
It may be best to complete this chart over several small units of time instead of in one sitting. Take the child's lead.
Collect the toys and manipulatives needed before beginning.
ABCJesusLovesMe is an educational ministry that equips adults with the materials needed to be intentional in educating children. To do this, ABCJesusLovesMe designed five comprehensive, research-based curricula for ages 1-5 that focus on academics, development, and Bible learning through play. Additionally, a Bible curriculum, unit studies, digital downloads, and the Be Intentional Planner accompany the core curricula. These materials are sufficient on their own, but the heart of ABCJesusLovesMe is to offer guidance, support, and direction to make your educational efforts at home, preschool, or church successful.
