We had a busy week with our reading assessment window opening this week. Each student is assessed with a book to determine their reading level. They are asked comprehension questions and at some levels, Level 16 and Level M, they are given a writing assessment as well. After level 16, we begin to use letters for levels, beginning with J. The end of the year kindergarten reading level benchmark is a level 6. Sometimes children will need to read a couple books to get to their frustration level, which is where the book is not a good match for them to maintain their reading comprehension.
While I have been testing, students have been working to finish the biographies they are writing about a classmate. They are doing a great job and have enjoyed learning more about their friends.
We had another great Talent Time performer this week. Take a look!
We had a fantastic trip to the College Park Aviation Museum. The kids were so well-behaved and the staff at the museum has the trip organized so well that the kids learn things, play, and get to see so much in a short time. Here are a few photos of our class at the museum.
