Kindergarten Reading Assessment
The district will assess our kindergartners in the fall, winter and spring to monitor our students' progress. They will assess letter recognition, sounds, picture naming, rhyming, matching pictures with same beginning sound(alliteration), onsets(saying the beginning sound of word), segmentation(breaking up the sounds in a word, ex. cat c-a-t) and reading words per minute in a passage(at the end of the year). Running Records are formal assessments done with individual students to find their independent reading level. Our goal this year is that our students will be reading at level C by the end of the year. Running records will be done three times a year or more depending on child.
