  • Activities are meaningful & engaging


Welcome to mrs weyerman s team

First, we do our morning work:

Students review and practice important skills while I work with individuals and small groups.


Welcome to mrs weyerman s team

We practice phonics decoding skills, work with new words, and use comprehension strategies. We work in learning centers. Groups will change throughout the year based on the student’s needs and the type of center.

During our reading block, we learn what good readers do.

Reading Fluency is one of_____

our goals.What is it?


What is dibels

  • *State mandated test that measures reading fluency.SSt

  • *Given three times a year: (Beginning, middle, and end)

  • *Students are “progress monitored” at least once a month.rogress

  • *Benchmark is the 40th percentile. Of course, we want to aim higher.

  • The benchmark standards are listed below:mon

  • itored at least once a month.

  • Best results: Do repeated readi

  • *Our report card rubric for reading fluency is listed below. We do not use DIBELSpassages for this assement.ngs and READ EVERYDAY.

  • Winter – 68 words per minute

  • Given three times a year: (Beginning-Middle-End)

  • Spring – 90 words per minute

What is DIBELS?

Fall – 52words per minute

Winter – 72words per minute

Spring – 87words per minute


Welcome to mrs weyerman s team

How can you help improve your child’s fluency?

Read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read…


Welcome to mrs weyerman s team

What else can you do to help your child become a better reader?

Help your child study their weekly spelling words. Focus on the phonics skill listed in our weekly agenda. www.spellingcity.com is a fun way for your child to practice.


Welcome to mrs weyerman s team

Writing

  • Help your child study their weekly vocabulary words. Study guides will come home. When you read with your child, ask them if they know words that may be unfamiliar. Help them make connections to these words by offering explanations and relating it to words they know. We create mental images in class to help them make connections to words. Prompt them to use context clues when reading.


Welcome to mrs weyerman s team

Can your child tell you what a story is about?

Our comprehension focus strategy will always be listed on our agenda. Ask your child questions about what they are reading before, during, and after reading. This will help train them to do it on their own. Picking a book that is right for them is an important part of comprehension. I will be sending star reading levels home to help you know the AR level that your child is on. I have taught them how to do the method below.


Welcome to mrs weyerman s team

What is Raz kids?

RAZ = Reading A to Z

Software that enables children to read books on-line and take computer generated tests.
