January Testing


The AST team will not be meeting with reading groups for about 2 weeks because January school wide reading assessments began today.  I will continue to send home reading bags for first grade students during this time.

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.
