informal assessment1
Informal Assessment
  • Determined that Ben had great background knowledge and familiarity with stories and words
  • Ben reads many words from memory
  • He is often reluctant to sound words out
  • Unsure how to decode
  • Despite knowledge of letter-sound correspondences he does not use them while reading words
so what next
So… What Next?
  • Decided I would work with Ben to help him use all that he has in his schema to read words
  • I would activate his prior and background knowledge before during and after reading
  • Give Ben skills and strategies that he can pull from during reading
  • Evaluated the 5 components of reading and how they applied to Ben
  • Made sure Ben’s mother was on board and willing to work together on this- she was 
working together
Working Together
  • Able to pull Ben aside to work one-on-one a few times a week
  • Used results from QRI-5 as guide and planned briefly from there
  • Tried to make skills and strategies something he would use consistently while reading
  • Wanted him to be confident enough to read independently and able to comprehend
  • His mother also helped work with him at home

formal assessment1
Formal Assessment
  • Showed that Ben still heavily relies on background knowledge to help him
  • Despite the skills and strategies we tried to instill in him, he still does not like to sound out or decode words
  • Proves that Ben is still an emerging reader, but is able to experience success
  • Shared the results with Ben’s mom again
what this taught me
What This Taught Me…
  • Working one-on-one with a child can present many challenges and struggles, especially when the child is reluctant to learn things
  • Allowed me to complete these types of informal and formal assessment firsthand and then apply it directly to a student
  • Gave me a chance to further break down the 5 components of reading and how they relate to the children in my classroom
  • To feel more confident as a reading educator going into the future
