Reading Workshop Additional Information:
Our reading instruction is taught in a workshop format.  A big change for both teachers and parents is assessment. As the paper/pencil end of the basal story tests fade away, expect to see changes in how your child is assessed in workshop.
At the beginning of the school year, each child will be individually assessed to find his/ her reading level. This helps your child’s teacher guide your child toward ‘just right’ books for independent reading time and to be able to give your child a
challenge for small group instruction. In between the benchmark assessments, the teacher is conferencing with each student and taking anecdotal notes, and doing running records to check the child’s accuracy and comprehension. All of these help the teacher really get to know your child as a reader.
