1 Welcome Families! LACY LITERACY NIGHT Welcome to Kindergarten Open House

2 Reading “Terminology” Phonological Awareness: a series of skills ranging from easy to difficult which includes spoken words, syllables, rhyming, and phonemes Phonemes: individual sounds Print Concepts/Reading Behaviors: what a child knows about books and print Fluency: reading with flow and expression for the purpose of comprehension Strategies: behaviors used when reading Benchmarks: Wake County Public Schools quarterly expectations the indicate proficiency for a typically developing child at his/her grade level. mCLASS/DIBELS: assessments given three times a year Text Reading Comprehension (TRC): a teacher’s record of a child’s oral reading and oral and written comprehension which is used for instructional purposes Common Core Standards: A nationwide incentive for all students to graduate from high school college and career ready Daily Café: A structure for managing the classroom Literacy Block (ELA)

3 Phonological Awareness Skills Sequence Phonological Awareness includes a series of skills, ranging from easy to difficult. The main components include: 1. Concept of Spoken Word (sentence segmentation) The ability to distinguish words in a sentence Example: I like apples. (three words) 2. Rhyme The ability to recognize rhyme, complete rhyme, and produce rhyme Examples: Does pick rhyme with stick? Complete this rhyme: Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great ____. What word rhymes with ball? 3. Syllables The ability to blend, segment, and delete syllables Examples: Foot-ball together says football Clap the parts in rainbow. (two claps) Say out side without side. (out) 4. Phonemes The ability to recognize initial and final sounds in words Examples: What is the first sound in the word dot? /d/ What is the last sound in the word sun? /s/ The ability to blend onset and rime Example: You know can, what is this word? m /an/ The ability to blend, segment, and delete phonemes Examples: /p/ /i/ /g/. What is this word? pig What are the individual sounds in pot? /p/ /o/ /t/ Say take without the /t/. (ake) Say big without the /g/. (ig) 5. Phoneme Manipulation The ability to add and/or substitute phonemes Examples: Say it. Now add /s/. (sit) Replace the first sound in back with /t/. (tack) Replace the last sound in bug with /n/. (bun)

4 Print Concepts/Reading Behaviors Front of the book Back of the book Title of the book Where to begin reading, first word Left-to-right directionality, return sweep One letter, two letters Difference between letters and words First/last word on a page First/last letter in a word Capital/lowercase letters Period/Question mark One to One matching when reading Using picture support




8 Common Core Standards Nation-wide incentive for all students to graduate high school college and career ready. Building knowledge through content-rich non fiction and fiction texts Reading and writing is grounded in evidence from text. Regular practice with complex text and academic vocabulary. Increased rigor and grade level expectations/benchmarks

9 DIBELS: Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy DIBELS First Sound Fluency (FSF) Hearing and using sounds in spoken words, measured by: Can your child......identify the first sound in moon? (mmm)...identify the middle sound in rain? (ay)...identify the last sound in fish? (shhh) DIBELS Letter Naming Fluency (LNF) Recognizing letters of the alphabet by name DIBELS Phoneme Segmentation Fluency (PSF) Knowing sounds of letters and sounding out written words We will start measuring phonics in the middle of kindergarten. TEXT READING AND COMPREHENSION (TRC). Reading for comprehension, the ultimate goal of reading, is measured by Text Reading and Comprehension (TRC). Print Concepts (PC) Reading Behaviors (RB) Instructional reading level (TRC) is determined by oral reading and oral and written comprehension mClass Literacy Assessments
