Yes I will research if our district has the early literacy tasks. I am not a huge fan of DIBELS other than the assessment pieces but many teachers speak favorably about it. . . .
Of course with kinder. I didn't start guided reading until Feb. Guided reading looks very different in kinder than in first or second grade. Our first grade teachers (3 out of 4) are prior Reading Recovery teachers and 2 are Reading Specialists. They have tried to assist these newbie kinder teachers but they chose to follow their own philosophy. These first grade teachers were trained by outstanding Reading Recovery kinder teachers all with sped ed. credentials. They trained before retirement many, many teachers in our district in guided reading.(including myself) They chose to begin guided reading in Sept. of kinder. I believe if we don't expose these kindies to books they will begin first grade even further behind. If their teachers won't then I will. I do appreciate your input and I'm glad your kinder teachers are data driven. You sound like you are a great asset to your school.
