Assessments used at 3-5
  • Assessment We assess using AIMSweb to determine
    where each individual child is functioning
    compared to children nationwide as well as in our
    own district and school. We do benchmark tests
    three times per year and monitor progress with
    students who are at risk in any area.
  • MAPs (Measures of Academic Progress) in reading
    to measure academic growth and provides us with
    insights into your childs strengths and
    weaknesses. A Lexile range is also linked to the
    MAP RIT score, which measures reading
    comprehension. The Lexile score represents the
    level of text that a student can successfully
    read with 75 comprehension. By using the Lexile
    score, teachers and parents are able to find
    book, periodicals, and other reading materials
    that will be appropriately challenging for each

Reading Components
  • Word Study
  • Breaking the word up and using multi-syllabic
    word strategies
  • Meaning/Vocabulary
  • -What does it mean?
  • Fluency
  • -Rate-Number of words read correctly in 1
  • -Accuracy-Words read correctly in a reading.
  • Comprehension
  • -Understanding the authors message/
  • meaning of text

Word Study
  • Encourage children to break a multi-syllabic word
    into chunks/syllables
  • Review syllable division patterns (VClCV, VlCV,
    VClV, VlV)
  • Look for vowel combinations and think of other
    words that have that same combination
  • Study and work on prefixes and suffixes
  • Memorize words that dont follow the rules of
    spelling-sight words

  • Read aloud to children everyday and model what
    fluent expressive reading sounds like.
  • Encourage children to reread favorite books to
    improve fluency.
  • Listen to children read everyday, giving them
    support when they really get stuck. Patience and
    a lot of praise/encouragement are the key to
  • Help children to choose books that are at their
    level, so that they dont become overwhelmed and
  • Buddy reading allows older children to read to
    younger ones.
  • Books on tape enable children to listen to
    stories and follow along in the book.
  • Choral reading helps develop fluency by letting
    the children read aloud with the adult.
  • During echo reading, the adult reads a sentence,
    paragraph, or page aloud and then the children
    reread that piece.
  • Nursery rhymes, poems, songs, and speeches are
    great for performing and fun for children.
  • Children need to build their sight word
    knowledge in order to recognize words quickly
    when reading.

  • Encourage children to tell about a new word they
    learned everyday.
  • Have children use post-it notes to mark words in
    the text that theyre unsure of and then go back
    after reading to clarify those words and look
    them up in the dictionary.
  • Encourage children to clarify the meaning of a
    word by using picture clues.
  • Children can be helped to clarify an unfamiliar
    word by reading to the end of the sentence or
    paragraph and then thinking about what the word
    could mean.
  • Rereading a sentence or paragraph helps children
    gain an understanding of unfamiliar words.
  • Clarifying the content of what has been read can
    help children zoom in on the unfamiliar word.
  • Break a multi-syllabic word into chunks/syllables
    and then think about the meaning of the root word.

  • Encourage your kids to use these reading
    strategies as theyre reading their novels/texts.
  • Making Connections
  • Making Predictions
  • Questioning
  • Visualizing
  • Inferring
  • Determining Importance
  • Summarizing Synthesizing
  • Using your inner voice
  • Its a great idea to have them record their
    strategies on post its and stick it on the page
    where they made that connection, inference, etc.
    This way they are actively recording their
    thinking and have an ongoing record.

The Power of Books..Read Alouds are STILL
  • Regular family conversations will take care of
    the basic vocabulary (common lexicon), but when
    you read to the child you leap into the rare
    words that help the most when it's time for
    school and formal learning. Simultaneously,
    you're familiarizing the child with books and
    print in a manner that brings him or her

Mr. Trelease addresses the often repeated, I
just dont have time.
  • To easily put the lie to the time myth, count
    the number of video stores you pass in one day,
    then count the number of channels on your TV, and
    finally count the number of cars in your local
    mall at 730 in the evening. If Americans were
    out of time, the video stores would be in
    bankruptcy court, you'd have only 10 TV channels
    (one set to a house), and the mall parking lot
    would be three-quarters empty.

We have time for what we value.
  • The people who found the time to read to a
    child and to themselves yesterday had the same 24
    hours as the person who had no time to read, but
    did watch their favorite team on TV or the
    afternoon soap they taped, did find the time to
    talk on the phone for 35 minutes, and did find
    the time to run over the mall for a minute.

Youre doing the right things!
  • Read aloud to your child
  • Read with your child
  • Be a good role model of reading
  • Support your childrens reading
  • Use words of praise
  • Read to your children, even as babies. It is an
    important part of childrearing. We pass on the
    love of reading
