Clip to ScrapBook #1

a set of benchmarks for standards throughout the year. Like how many letters they should know by November? March? end of year? Writing benchmarks, etc.

I pretty much go off of instinct after all these years. I have a partner teacher new to K and she is struggling to figure out how to assign grades. And I agree that having something like that would make things a lot easier.

I'm thinking someone here shared something similar last year or the year before. I can't find it, though.

Thank you!

We officially base it on which letters/sounds we've taught. To be proficient, they must have learned what we taught. It's not fair to have a rubric which says by November, a kiddo knows 18/26 letters, but we've only taught 12. You know?

Unofficially, I do have opinions about a kid's proficiency. If a kid doesn't know the difference between letters and numbers, knows zero letters or numbers at the start of K, I know we have a long road ahead and plan Tier II almost immediately.

We have very few benchmarks. For things like letters and sounds, counting, etc. we just record what they can do with the knowledge that they need to know it all by the end of the year. The only thing we really have a benchmark for is our writing assessment.

However, like Zia said I know within weeks (as most teachers do) which babies are going to need interventions all year long and group accordingly (and then pray that I'm wrong!).

This is what our team came up with. It is helpful when meeting with parents to discuss retention. I usually circle where their skills are and they can easily see that their child is not ready for the next grade level.

Thank you! I'll pass that along to my partner. She is really feeling lost.
