Dear Room 23 Parents,
Please sign-up for a slot for your child to be assessed with our reading assessment program the week of December 9th - 13th. Students will be on a minimum day schedule (8:15-12:40) each day that week (with the exception if 1:30 Wednesday dismissal) in order to accommodate the assessment of each child. Your child will need to come early or come back to school during their scheduled time to read with me individually.
This one-on-one reading assessment reliably and systematically determines students' instructional and independent reading abilities. During this assessment, I will listen to your child read a short book, measuring their accuracy, fluency, and comprehension. This information is used to find their instructional and independent reading levels, which helps us as teachers make the best instructional decisions for your child. We appreciate your support as we implement this comprehensive reading assessment system.
Thank you so much for your assistance with this important assessment! I look forward to reading with your child!
