what are we doing
What are we doing?
  • Every Grade 2 child in New Brunswick is assessed using the same tool.
  • It is an assessment of the child, the school and the educational system in New Brunswick as a whole.
slide3
The writing assessment takes place within a 10 day period. Students may actually write several pieces and their teachers select the best to send to Fredericton.
  • The choice of topic is the child’s. You may help them brainstorm an idea the night before.
  • Handwriting is not held against the child, but the piece must be readable for the markers to assess it.
  • The writing is assessed during the summer by a team of teachers. It must have 2 teachers independently agree on the grade before it is given the mark. (BAA, AA, SA)
slide4
The reading assessment takes 2-3 days (maximum 45 minutes each). It will consist of 6-8 pieces at various reading levels. (K-L-M)
  • It is multiple choice. The student circles the best answer out of four choices.
  • It includes fiction and non-fiction.

Three “essentials” to reading success:

Accuracy

Fluency/expression

Comprehension

accuracy
Accuracy
  • To be considered an “independent” reader at any level the child must be able to read almost all (95%) of the words correctly.
  • Must be able to recognize a number of words by sight. (Different from “no excuse” words for writing.)
fluency
Fluency
  • Reading should sound like talking.
  • See handout for suggestions.
comprehension
Comprehension
  • Won’t happen if there are problems with accuracy and fluency.
  • It is the core of why we read.
  • Three levels of comprehension:

- literal

- inferential

- personal/critical

literal
Literal

The answer to your question is directly in the book. (Giving support/proof)

inferential
Inferential

Combining what the author

has said with what you know

to discover the implied

meaning.

personal critical
Personal/Critical

Responding to the text with your opinion or relating to personal experiences.

journal jar

Write things that have happened to

your child (small moment) on strips of

paper. When your child is stuck for a

writing idea, choose one from the jar.

Use photos and pictures that your child

has drawn to show different events

that have happened to you. These may

include a birthday party, sporting

event, family outing, best friends, relatives etc.

done or picked up while grocery

and friends. It is very rewarding to

get a message back.

Write story starters on popsicle sticks

and have your child choose one.

Sometimes a few key words can set off

a child’s imagination.

share the pen
Share the Pen

Write the beginning to a story and have your child add on. Continue sharing the pen until you come up with a good middle and ending. Read the story back and forth to each other as you write to make sure the story makes sense.

Have your child retell a favourite story that you have read to him/her. Give credit to the author and don’t use his/her exact words!

Have your child give a different ending to a favourite story.
