ELA Winter Benchmark

Friendly Reminder

Important Dates that are Coming Up

January 29th: Benchmark Assessment Due

  • Give only to students below the 50th percentile on Reading MAP to determine growth and guide instruction and interventions
  • 1st-3rd: Fountas and Pinnell Benchmark Kits
  • 4th-5th: Running Record and Comprehension Questions (Journey's or 100 Book Challenge)
  • Place the students who you assessed on a class data sheet and turn it into me (I have these forms if you need them)

Please let me know if you need a F&P Kit and if you have any questions.

I also have copies of all the F&P Running Records forms so if you need more please let me know what level and if it is fiction or non-fiction that you need. The district provided copies so that we don't have to run them ourselves.
