Math Assessments Common Core Style

AHHH...implementation of the Common Core Standards is a huge project. Each week we are realizing the need for different assessments. A few weeks ago, I tackled a math assessment.
The CCSS is Number and Operations in Base Ten  1.NBT
Extend the counting sequence.
1.  Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read
and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.

Our math textbook has little to none in the way of counting lessons or assessments for counting. This year, we are relying heavily on Kathy Richardson's Developing Number Concepts for the majority of our math lessons. Her program relies heavily on manipulation and inquiry with math manipulatives. Once a student begins to show mastery, the written component is added in. I have had great success with her program in my classroom. 

Based on the lessons we have been teaching, I created an assessment for counting to 120.  Our district has divided the counting sequence into 1 to 30, 1 to 60, 1 to 100, and 1 to 120.  I hope you will find it useful!
