This week is DIBELS testing. Your child will be evaluated on strengths and weaknesses indicating their future success as a reader and general success in school. Our goal is for your child to benchmark in the green area. If they do not, we will offer remediation to help them catch up in the areas they fall short. To benchmark for the fall your child need to score 40 in Phoneme Segmentation (PSF), 27 nonsense word fluency (NWF) Correct Letter Sounds (CLS), and 1 nonsense word fluency (NWF) whole word read (WWR) to benchmark with a composite score of 113.
I am also sending home a bookmark to use when reading with your child to help with comprehension. Read and then ask your child to answer the questions on the bookmark. I would like the bookmark to be kept in the front of their homework folder.
