Clip to ScrapBook #7

I teach only 3rd grade Title I. For a few years we didn't have adequate coverage in 2nd grade, and I got more kids with much weaker ability. In March 2006 our district hired a 2nd grade Reading teacher and it has gotten much better since then. On the other hand, kids are coming in at much lower levels, though there are fewer of them. I have kids as low as 1.0 in 3rd grade this year. The 2nd grade Reading teacher is seeing kids who don't know sight words and basically can't read, in 2nd grade. I have far fewer students than in past years, luckily, because the ones I do get are pretty low and need a lot of attention and focus.
