Announcements: Reading Results

Over the past 2 weeks, I've tested/retested every child on their current reading level. The benchmark for the end of JK is a level 2, and a level 4 for SK. You will have received an update in your child's important bag informing you of what level they are at.

If you have any questions or concerns about your child's reading, I am always here to talk and explain things to you. If you do not agree with your child's reading assessment score, I'd be happy to refer you to our Learning Resource Teacher who can retest your child on the exact same assessment.

Guided reading groups will be readjusted so that students of similar ability levels can work on the same thing. Because we have such a large gap in our reading levels (A- to 12), we obviously work on different things to help them reach the next level (i.e., sounding out words, retelling the story, etc.)

A reminder that if you want to know what to work on to help your child achieve the next reading level you can read the descriptions here under DRA Descriptions.

Home reading books will be sent home at this level, as this is what your child can do independently.  

I've also made a new video to help parents whose children are at an A- and are looking for ideas on how to help them at home.
