We DO meet as a staff this week. Our meeting will begin with information about the Apex Leadership/Fundraiser/Fun run. We will also build classes for the 2018-19 school year.
Please bring your blue slips to lunch on Monday, May 14.
Thanks to Karina, Laura, Jeanne, RoseAnn and Angelica (sorry Holli and Erin) for attending ILT. Linked below is the presentation from the day.
“Fountas and Pinnell will determine reading level of all students in order to support independent reading at their level and provide appropriate instruction to progress. In Illuminate, report Instructional Level (shows what students are working on) andIndependent level, and collect information on accuracy, fluency, comprehension, and genre on Instructional Level. It is ideal to test to Hard in order to ensure students are not actually reading at a higher level. Use of the WORD LIST is not considered a level, and is used to determine a starting point for students without prior scores.
· First round completed by September 1
· TK/K teachers to complete first round by November 3
· Second round completed by February 2 (all grades)
· Third round completed by May 25 (all grades)
Fountas and Pinnell suggest to start with student choice of genre for each assessment session. Alternate fiction/non-fiction within the session. Next round, allow for student choice again and alternate.
