Frog Street AIM Observational Assessment for children ages birth to five is a teacher-friendly tool designed to guide a child’s progress toward kindergarten readiness using evidence-based continuous progress monitoring.
AIM OBSERVATIONAL OFFERS INSTRUCTIONAL STRATEGIES TO HELP TEACHERS AND CHILDREN SUCCEED
AIM Observational Assessment is a turnkey solution that provides continuous monitoring tools, differentiated instructional strategies, activities and online guided support – all in one easy-to-navigate, reliable system.
AIM has defined and operationalized 60 Learning Progressions which are signifiers of knowledge and skills essential for kindergarten within the domains of social-emotional, language, cognitive, and physical development. These signifiers, or “learning progressions,” emerge at infancy or toddlerhood and continue to develop in complexity and scope into the kindergarten year.
Over 200 strategies and activities for differentiating instruction provide developmentally-appropriate adaptations and suggestions to help teachers guide children’s learning.
The AIM Observational Assessment is aligned to state and program standards, including the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework (HSELOF) and the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) Early Learning Outcomes.
The AIM Observational Assessment is aligned to Frog Street Curriculums (Pre-K, Threes, Toddler, and Infant), providing seamless delivery of instruction and assessment across all age ranges, from birth to 5. Additionally, the AIM Observational Assessment can be utilized with your current curriculum.
Frog Street offers a supplemental resource kit that includes support materials for implementing the strategies in the AIM Differentiating Instruction Resource Guide. The kit includes materials that are referenced in the activity suggestions to make instruction quick and easy.
The Differentiating Instruction Resource Kit includes:
35 literature books
5 Story Folders
27 Photo Activity Cards
Songs and Patterns (digital downloads)
