Important Information for Parents

Dear First Grade Parent(s),

Your child will be participating in various assessments this week.  Please know that the assessments that will be administered are to evaluate your child's progress in various areas of reading.  You can help your child prepare for these assessments by ensuring that your child is well-rested.  Your child has grown comfortable in participating in the weekly reading test.  In addition to the weekly reading test, your child will also take small sections of the unit three reading test.  The unit three reading test evaluates your child on the concepts, skills, and strategies that were taught and learned throughout the third reading book versus the weekly test.  The weekly reading test focuses on the concepts, skills, and strategies for that particular story.  Please know that all sections of the tests will be given throughout the week.  Your child will take one or two small sections each day.  Much review and practice has been completed and it is now your child's turn to show what they know! 

You will notice that we are not beginning a new reading story this week due to the shortened week.  This week will give us the opportunity to review and practice the reading concepts, skills, and strategies that we have learned thus far. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
