What do we want children to know and be able to do with text in our school
What do we want children to know and be able to do with text in our school?

  • Read and comprehend

  • Read fluently

  • Expand vocabulary

  • Decode fluently



Inferences in our school?

  • Entering kindergarten students are somewhat weak in the area of vocabulary.

  • Teachers need to increase the number of read-alouds on a daily basis.

  • Teachers need to incorporate instructional strategies during whole group activities, such as graphic organizers, direct instruction, picture clues, word walls.



Inferences in our school?

  • The majority of the students in kindergarten are on target for explicit, systematic grade-level instruction.

  • The students at-risk will need additional time in small group intervention on phonemic awareness activities.



Inferences in our school?

  • Instruction for kindergarten students was significantly successful in the area of vocabulary development.

  • For first grade students at-risk, vocabulary instruction needs to be intensified. These students may need additional word wall activities, support from graphic organizers, and direct instruction from teachers.



Inferences
Inferences in our school?

  • Last year’s kindergarten program was effective for approximately ¾ of the cohort; these students are ready for explicit, systematic grade-level instruction.

  • For students at-risk, teachers should use the core aligned supplemental program (Touch Phonics) and phonics intervention strategies obtained from the “Teacher Academy” and other resources.



Inferences1
Inferences in our school?

  • First grade instruction was less than effective in the areas of phonics and fluency with slightly more than half of the students meeting benchmark.

  • Second grade students will need additional practice in phonics during needs-based groups and intensive intervention.

  • Teachers will need to diagnose areas of deficiency to form intervention groups.



Inferences2
Inferences in our school?

  • Second grade instruction was not effective in the area of fluency with 61% not reaching benchmark.

  • Second and third grade teachers need to increase fluency practice time.

  • Teachers will need to diagnose areas of deficiency to form intervention and needs-based groups.

  • Fidelity to the core is critical to meet academic benchmarks. Use the pacing guide to ensure students maintain growth over time.

  • Self-evaluation and peer observations enable teachers to improve instruction.

  • Needs-based groups need to be flexible.

  • Utilization of progress monitoring results enable teachers to differentiate instruction.
