  • Patterns

  • Dear Parents/Guardians,

  • Our class completed a district assessment titled: Patterns. The assessment covered the following CYSD indicator:

  • Identify, extend, and construct patterns

  • Our goal is for your child to demonstrate these tasks by the end of kindergarten. Once mastered, students need to maintain this skill throughout the year. Please note that this assessment is not the only way that your child is being assessed in math. It is one of the numerous ways that is used to determine if a student has mastered the skills and concepts in our math curriculum and what areas are still in need of improvement. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns regarding this assessment.

  • ______ Met District Standard on this assessment

  • ______ Did not meet District Standard on this assessment
