Kindergarten is always a tricky class to have the first week... in my opinion. They are just starting to learn how to walk in a line, wait their turn to be called on and listen to the teacher when she/he is talking. Kindergarten teachers are special people! I couldn't do it all day long!
A couple years ago, I borrowed a great idea from someone on Pinterest. I looked at my page to find the source, but I could not find the pin! I must have immediately made it and moved on. But, someone out there gave me this great idea! Basically, a baseline assessment to see their drawing skills and maturity. A great twist on the "Draw a man" test.
Here it is....
On the back, students have a dotted picture to trace. It helps to assess their abilities to follow a line. Then I encourage them to color and extra items to the drawing.
