Assessing Numbers 1-10

I can't believe the first day of school is almost here! I'm starting to get organized for the first day, and thought I'd share a quick number assessment freebie. This is pretty basic- just the numbers 1-10, but lots of my students don't even come in knowing all of the numbers to ten.

I plan to test each student on the first day to see if they can identify the numerals 1-10, and also if they can count objects 1-10 and match them up with the correct number. I'll use these number and picture cards to help me assess the students. I'll quickly show the kiddos the number cards in mixed up order to see if they can name the numbers. Then I'll give them the number and picture cards and ask them to count the objects on each picture card and match it to the correct number card.

Feel free to click the images below and grab the number cards or recording sheet if they'll help you!


I'd love to hear about your plans for assessing students on the first day. Even though I plan to test them all on letters and numbers, the first day can be hectic and it doesn't always get done!


  1. Good to see you back to blogging! Love this assessment.

  2. Yay! Thanks so much! I will be able to use this in my prek class! Love it!
