Mrs. Wilson's Class
Sixth graders took the STAR test on Tuesday and seventh graders took the test on Wednesday. Some of these dates may be different from last weeks newsletter due to the fact that I was out sick on Monday. However, I saw some exceptional gains! Overall, each of the classes saw growth in average scale score points. Keep up the reading at home. To help the gain continue, make sure the books that your child is selecting are in their Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). This will ensure that your child is reading a book that is just right for them. A book within your child's ZPD will provide challenges without frustration. Your child should know their ZPD. They may not have it memorized but they do have it written down here at school in their Readers Notebook.
