Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA) Administered 2/4x a year in kindergarten, first and second grade. Assesses and documents reader’s development at instructional levels Results determine reading block placement.
Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS) 1.Phonemic Awareness 2.Alphabetic Principle and Basic Phonics 3.Word Attack Skills 4. Accurate and Fluent Reading of Connected Text 5. Comprehension
80 Minutes Long Three Reading Levels ◦ Title Groups/Working Towards ◦ Average ◦ Above Grade Level Project Read/Word Study Guided Reading Homogeneous Group (Instructional Reading Level/Reading Block)
1. DRA ◦ 1 st grade - Level 3 (Strategic/Core with Concerns) or below ◦ 2 nd grade - Level 16 (Strategic/Core with Concerns) or below 2. DIBELS- Strategic/Intensive 3. 2 nd grade only ◦ Below an average of 75% on previous year’s Core/benchmark scores for Scott Foresman 4. Teacher observation of ongoing student performance: This can include work samples, weekly assignments, ongoing progress monitoring, etc.
To be in this category, the child must have the following criteria. 1. DRA ◦ 1 st grade - Level 3 - 14 ◦ 2 nd grade - Level 16 (Independent) or above 2. DIBELS-Strategic/Benchmark 3. An average of 75% on previous year’s benchmark scores for Scott Foresman 4. Teacher observation of ongoing student performance: This can include work samples, weekly assignments, ongoing progress monitoring, etc.
Students must meet the following criteria to be in this category. 1. DRA ◦ 1 st grade - Level 16 or above ◦ 2 nd grade - Level 24 or above 2. DIBELS – Core/Benchmark 3. An average of 90% or above on previous year’s benchmark scores for Scott Foresman 4. Teacher observation of ongoing student performance: This can include work samples, weekly assignments, ongoing progress monitoring, etc.

Establish Learning Goals Reading Individual Apply Learned Concepts ◦ Application & transfer of taught concepts used throughout all subject areas Knowing Instructional Focus of Lesson ◦ Understand & be able to explain the lesson’s purpose- why it is critical to learn this chunk of information, on this day, and in this way
Be in the KNOW ◦ Child’s Academic Levels ◦ Student Reading Goals ◦ Attend Parent Conferences ◦ Provide Current Phone Numbers Support/Parent Involvement ◦ Home Support ◦ Participation in Reading Incentive Program ◦ Reading Eggs ◦ Attendance ◦ Read, Read, Read with your child Model Expectations ◦ Motivate ◦ Encourage/Support/Provide ◦ Enforce
