PMP (Progress Monitoring Plan)

  • This is for students who are having areas of difficulty.

    • Ex. Reading or Math

  • This is used to identify the problems and address them in a timely manner.

  • We then provide whatever resources that are needed for your child.

  • We will continually monitor their progress to make sure they are on grade level.

AR tests and books

  • Our class will check books on Thursday’s.

  • Your child will be getting a Reading Log. They are to record the books they have read during the week. Please help them each evening by listening to them and signing the log. Ask them questions about the story. They will take a short comprehension test on the computer after they have completed the book. After they have taken a test, they will be allowed to take another book from the Media Center. This is only allowed once a week as per the school rules.

  • Students will be allowed to check out three books. One will be in Spanish and two in English. They are to check out at least one chapter book at their AR level.
