  6. How Do we Create our Curriculum? • At Mitchell, teachers design curricula, instruction, and performance assessments that align with The Common Core State Standards.  Through Backward Mapping, a meticulous endeavor that articulates what students will know, understand, and be able to do at each grade level, students are prepared for success in college and careers.  • Students connect their learning from year-to-year as they build towards a rigorous understanding of school-wide Big Ideas and Essential Questions (Wiggins, McTighe). •   Literary experiences are embedded in all subject areas through reading, writing, thinking and discussing. • At Mitchell, we do not use a one size fits all curriculum. We work tirelessly to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of every individual learner

  11. DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) • Students will take the DIBELS test three times this year (September, January, May). This test is to inform us of their language development. Between the four tests, I will progress monitor children to assess the progress they are making towards their reading goals. Each test is one minute long. Depending on your child’s score, they will be grouped into an intensive (red), strategic (yellow), or benchmark (green) group. It is our goal for all students to reach the benchmark group by the end of the year. The results of the DIBELS assessments help inform instruction and formation of small learning groups. • The four tests are as follows: • Letter Naming Fluency (LNF)-how many letters than can identify in 1 minutes • First Sound Fluency (FSF)- how many beginning sounds students can identify a minute • Phonemic Segmentation Fluency (PSF)-a student will be told a word and they must sound out the word. It is a 1 minute test • Nonsense Word Fluency (NWF)- how many sounds a student can read in nonsense words in a minute. A nonsense word=biv • Website for more information: •

  14. Trc-Reading Test • Students will also be assessed through a test called TRC. This will pinpoint each student’s individual reading level. The test will be administered in September, January, and May. This test helps inform instruction by pinpointing exact reading levels and additional support each child needs in reading and text comprehension. To reach benchmark by May, students need to be reading at or above a “B” level. The reading levels are based off of Fountas and Pinnell. Below you will find the reading levels for K-6th.

  16. Helpful website for trc • Helpful Website: How to incorporate reading in various ways at home • • Ways to help your child during summer: • Have your child point to each word while you read • Have your child read predictable texts • Read/experience nursery rhymes • Ask meaningful questions about books-character traits, making predictions, connections to this book/content, critical thinking questions, etc.
