Message from your Literacy Coach

Exciting iReady News: After analyzing our Winter diagnostic more closely, I wanted to share some really exciting gains that we are showing across grade levels. Our data wall is updated to reflect these positive changes. You'll see the Needs Assessment for your grade level and the Intervention Screener that breaks down the number of students in red, yellow, and green.


We are making some AMAZING progress on our foundational skills {phonological awareness, phonics, high frequency words, etc.} thanks to our LLI kits and iReady usage. Our next steps will include building language skills like vocabulary and word relationships. I know that we have the Very Best Educators here and this will a challenge we can tackle together!

Kindergarten

Our kinders are making huge gains in the areas of phonics and high-frequency words. The table below shows the number of students below level in these areas. We saw a 6% decrease in students below grade level in phonics and a 9 point decrease for high-frequency words.
