Grade 3 Math Pre Assessment aligned to Grade 2 CCSS

This post is for all of you grade 3 readers out there..I guess it could also be used by 2nd grade teachers as well. While I was sick, I created a pre-assessment to give my students that contains *most of the grade 2 CCSS. I left out the measurement standards because I mainly wanted to check up on their basic skills. In the past, I have found that my students are so weak in their basic addition/subtraction facts and place value. Many don't know how to subtract with borrowing. Is this just me or do you all see this in your new third graders?? In the past, we've always given a pre assessment that contained all of the standards the kiddos needed to learn for their third grade year. This was just a huge, overwhelming test! Instead,I'd like to give them the opportunity for them to show me what they DO know. Plus, this will really help me in the first few weeks of teaching as I'm getting to know them as mathematicians.
2nd grade teachers could also use this to see what their kids know coming in..and can use the same test as a post-test. This test is available in my tpt store. First one to comment this post wins a free copy!!
The test covers the following:
Place Value
Standard/expanded form
Time and Money
Word Problems
Adding and subtracting within 1000
Mentally adding and subtracting 10 or 100 to a given number
comparing numbers
basic fractions
number patterns/skip counting
even and odd


  1. I would love to try it out!

  2. Always a day late and a dollar short! I love your assessment. Great ideas!

    1. Thanks for stopping by my blog-I am now following you too! I am always excited to find other third grade teachers. I can't wait to look through more of your posts!


  3. Bummer-what about the 3rd one is a charm? :)
