Make sure that you cover grade-appropriate information and easily identify any learning gaps with the Well-Planned Start! Each book contains two tests: a parent assessment and a student placement test.
The parent assessment is designed to help you become familiar with what your student knows. Tests for Bible, History, Science, Math, & Language Arts are provided with questions on various topics within those subjects, such as: "Can your child use an atlas?" or "Does your child know about the Maya, Inca, and Aztec civilizations?" There are detailed instructions on how to use the assessment, as well as worksheets to journal your findings; score all of the subjects in order to assess whether your student scores below, at, or above grade-level. Tips for teachers and explanatory notes of some of the concepts are also integrated throughout.
The student placement test features guidelines and instructions to evaluate student proficiency in Bible, History, Science, Math, & Language Arts while assessing the exact point of a student's understanding of specific processes, procedures, and information. The results give the parent a starting point for choosing curriculum or establishing a plan for strengthening weak areas.
After administering assessments, a section with Parent Teaching Tips features information on what makes each grade and age-level distinct, as well as practical teaching tips and bullet-point activity suggestions for concepts covered in the placement.
A checklist of milestones features a list of physical, emotional, and academic skills you can expect children to develop by the end of that grade with skills split between what most children should be comfortable doing, what your child may be able to do, and what some (usually gifted) children attempt.
Guidelines on when to use this book:
- If your student has finished the 1st grade and you want to make sure they are ready to proceed, this is the book to start with.
- If your student is going into the 1st grade, you should assess using the kindergarten book; however, you could purchase the 1st grade as a guide for what to cover or expect in the coming year. If your student is going into the 2nd grade, you should assess using this 1st grade book.
- If your student struggled in 1st grade, start out by giving the kindergarten grade placement to ascertain any educational gaps. If your student scores well enough to proceed, try the 1st grade test next. If your student struggled in 2nd grade, start out by giving the first grade placement to ascertain any educational gaps.
- If your child completed the 1st grade and neither struggled nor excelled, consider beginning with the kindergarten placement to ascertain any educational gaps. If your student tests well enough to proceed, give the 1st grade placement next.
If your child excelled in the 1st grade, start with this book and proceed according to the assessment score.

Anonymous2 Stars Out Of 5DisappointedAugust 29, 2017AnonymousQuality: 4Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1My daughter is in week 3 of 2nd grade. I bought well planned start 1 to see where she was and to get an idea of where we need to focus. Math and English were right where I expected them to be. Science and bible had some questions that I thought were ridiculous, but the history and geography section took the cake for me. It was extremely difficult for a kid who has only finished 1st grade. We've studied history in K and 1st grade and my daughter got one question right out of 20. 1! She is very smart. The questions are just above grade level. There are questions here that I never covered in 17 years of schools. Some examples: Matching religion to country. Naming the trails in the US. Naming conquistadors. Locating 5 settlements on the map. Knowing who Muhammad was. I basically paid $30 for my daughter to feel like she doesn't know anything! So disappointing...
