Elizabeth's teacher called me today for our phone parent/teacher conference. Mrs. Johnson was very happy with Elizabeth's progress, especially with her reading.
As a recap, from my previous post in February Second Term Report
They have 3 Scales.
Achievement scale which ranges 1- little understanding doesn't meet grade expectations, 2- Limited understanding, 3- General Understanding, 4- Thorough understanding always meets grade expectations
Effort Scale N- Needs improvement, P- making progress, G- Good, O- Outstanding
Skills Code- NA- Not assessed, X- Progress Needed, I- Improving, Blank- Acceptable.
Elizabeth's marks were
Kindergarten Readiness Skills- Achievement- 3, Effort G
Writing, Speaking Listening- Achievement- 3, Effort- O
Technology- Effort G
Reading Readiness Achievement- 4, Effort- G
Math Readiness- Achievement-3, Effort-O
Social Studies/Science- Effort-G
This report has following improvements or has stayed the same.
Kindergarten Readiness Skills- Achievement- 3, Effort- O <- effort improved
Writing, Speaking Listening- Achievement- 3, Effort- O <- stayed same
with the added improvement of her retelling a story.
Technology- Effort G <- Same
Reading Readiness Achievement- 4, Effort- G <- Same
Math Readiness- Achievement-4, Effort- G <- Her achievement has improved but her effort decreased a little, simply because she knows it and gets a little bored.
Social Studies/Science- Effort-G <- Same
She is improving with talking in class but still needs a gentle reminder now and then.
She has also read 25 more books this term.
They also did the AIMSweb test which is a requirement in our district.
The outcome measure is based on the following:
Letter Naming Fluency
Letter Sound Fluency
Phoneme Segmentation Fluency
and Nonsense Word Fluency.
She score above average in all areas.
Mrs. Johnson commented on how much she has improved with reading in such a short time. We also noticed reading "click" in just a week or so. She is doing well with sounding words out and she is writing stories now without help, writing her words phonically. Elizabeth is a little big of a teacher pet, from what I gather.
