Hello, Mrs. Davis! As you can see here from the reading assessment Maria scored very high on reading fluency. However, Maria scored below the grade level for the reading comprehension.
Have you noticed this at home? Does Maria like reading or does anyone read with her at home?
Maria usually reads independently but now when you mention it, sometimes I ask her about the book but she answers with only a few details.
Thanks for the input. Here is a reading journal that Maria keeps at school, in which she writes after every independent reading and I’m doing think aloud sessions with her and other students.
I would also like for Maria to start Visualizing and Verbalizing program to help her create mental images while reading. I was wondering if someone could read with her 20 mins everyday and ask questions about the story.
It looks like you already have a plan to help Maria. We will support her at home in any way necessary.
Thank you, Mrs. Davis! I will set up a weekly progress assessment sheet and email it to you so that we keep track of Maria’s reading comprehension progress in school and at home.
Thank you, Ms. Jasmina!
