I now have a list of LeTort teachers that do private tutoring in the summer. Let me know if you would like me to send it to you.

PSSA Testing and Reading Groups

Because the Academic Support Team is helping to administer PSSA tests, we will not be meeting with reading groups on testing days (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday of this week and Wednesday and Thursday of the following week). I will continue to send home reading bags.

Third Marking Period Conferences

I am hoping that by now all parents have been given an opportunity to meet to discuss your child’s progress. Some of you have already met and others have a date scheduled. If you have not been given an opportunity to meet, please contact me. I do not want to miss anyone. Thanks!

January Assessments and Interruption of Reading Groups

I will not be meeting with my reading groups for about 2 weeks because January school wide reading assessments began today.  I will however, continue to send home reading bags for kindergarten students and first grade students.

The January Assessments include:

Kindergarten Assessments- Sight words (The words tested are found on this blog.), letter names, letter sounds, first sound in words when asked orally – (“What is the first sound in the word man?” /m/), Segmenting sounds in words when asked orally –  (What are all the sounds in the word cat? /c/ /a/ /t/) and an assessment to determine overall reading level.

First Grade – Sight words (The words tested are found on this blog.), blending of letter sounds with a consonant, vowel, and consonant to create a pretend word (for example, “mip”), reading passages at the first grade level and an assessment to determine overall reading level.

Second Grade – Sight words (The words tested are found on this blog.), reading passages (oral reading and comprehension) at the second grade level and an assessment to determine overall reading level.

As always, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the assessments, our schedule or anything else.
