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

  • 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
