Alcance y secuencia (Scope and Sequence)
The Alcance y secuencia (Scope and Sequence) documents in this section provide a more detailed description of the Skills (Habilidades y Destrezas) and Knowledge (Conocimiento) topics of development in each grade level, as well as the sequence in which each are taught! Be sure to refer to this document to see where you are and where you’re going throughout the year. The Scope and Sequence documents also note where assessments are throughout the year.
Amplify Caminos assessments allow teachers to gain critical information about student mastery of standards-based performance tasks. Through the use of formative assessment embedded in the Grade K-5 lessons, teachers may amend instruction as needed to meet the diverse needs of learners. Assessments include the following formats and are used to gauge student understanding and application of the skills and knowledge units and domains.
