First Grade Weekly Update
January 8, 2016
Happy New Year!
Upcoming Events and Reminders
Throughout the next two weeks, the first graders will be taking quite a few reading and math assessments on the computers to assess their mid year progress.
Monday, January 11-22: Reading Assessments on the computer. (Early Literacy and Star Reading). Star Math test on the computer.
First grade teachers will also be assessing each student individually during these next two weeks with a reading fluency test. Each student will read 3 probes aloud to the teacher. Teachers will then record the number of words correctly read. This is not a comprehension assessment but a fluency assessment only.
First graders will also be assessed on the end of fiction reading unit next week. We have done our best to spread out all of these assessments throughout the next two weeks. We look forward to sharing the results of these tests with you at our parent conference time in February.
