Welcome to the 2018/2019 school year!  
I am so excited to roll out new language arts curriculum that is aligned to the state standards that targets struggling readers and writers.  September will be a busy month.  We will be focusing on activities that help us get to know each other, learning procedures, classroom expectations, and beginning of the year placement testing.  Our school is providing each student with a planner this year, so please remember to check it daily to learn more about your child's day and whether or not they have homework. Be sure to review the attached documents at the bottom for more information on classroom expectations, and other letters that have been sent home.

It includes the following components: 

  •  Scholastic Reading Inventory -(SRI) The Scholastic Reading Inventory is a computer-based test that assesses student reading level for program placement. The students will take the test several times throughout the year to measure progress. 
  • Phonics Inventory-The Phonics Inventory is a computer-based test designed to determine if the root cause of reading difficulty is decoding. It is used for program placement and to measure progress throughout the year. 
  • Small and Whole Group Instruction- Teacher-led lessons focus on reading strategies and skill practice, and quizzes are given to measure student understanding. 
  • Adaptive Technology -Students use adaptive technology to practice reading comprehension, fluency, spelling, writing, and decoding skills. Lessons are customized for each student and provide immediate, corrective feedback. 
  • Reading-Students select leveled books at their independent reading level, and chart their progress in a reading log. Writing activities accompany each book, and students complete these activities as they are reading. After completing a book and its writing activities, students take a computer based quiz to test their understanding of the book.
