7 Leah cried as she pointed to the creature on the shore she and Matt paddled toward the riverbank Leah cried as she pointed to the creature on the shore. She and Matt paddled toward the riverbank.

8 SAMPLE ONE - Adult The complex boundaries between orderly and chaotic behavior had unsuspected regularities that could only be described in terms of the relation of large scales to small. The structures that provided the key to nonlinear dynamics proved to be fractals. SAMPLE TWO - Child Leah cried as she pointed to the creature on the shore. She and Matt paddled toward the riverbank. Matt and Leah are in a a. sailboat b. car c. canoe d. train

9  Scott Foresman Reading Series – weekly selections build phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency  Explicit instruction of reading strategies  Independent Reading – practice phonics, vocabulary, comprehension, and fluency  Science & Social Studies reading material – further enhance reading instruction and develop strategies for informational texts  DIBELS Testing – to monitor reading rate and accuracy  Unit Benchmark Tests – to monitor phonics, vocabulary, and comprehension skills

11  Purpose – to measure students’ achievement in the five strands of mathematics *Number sense, concepts, and operations *Measurement *Geometry & Spatial Sense *Algebraic Thinking *Data Analysis & Probability  Includes two, sixty minute math tests & a Norm Referenced fifty minute test  All items multiple choice

12  Most are assessed in a problem solving context  Example: Fiona measured four items. The pencil was 6 inches long, the paper was 12 inches long, the length of the book was 1 foot, and the length of the scissors was 8 inches. Which item had the shortest length? A. The pencil B. The paper C. The book D. The scissors

13  Harcourt Brace Math Series  Harcourt Brace FCAT Practice Workbook  Morning seatwork  Supplemental materials  Explicit instruction of problem solving strategies
