Going for the Green!

Sorry that I've been pretty MIA this week.

This week my first graders took their DIBELS reading test.

To pump them I read "The Little Engine that Could" and they made "I know I can" train hats.

I also decorated the room in green for them. (Green = benchmark)

They have grown so much this year and I am so proud of them.

Here are the results. (I'm VERY visual)

The tab colors represent their Fall DIBELS test scores.

Red= Intensive, Yellow= Strategic, Green= Benchmark.

The tabs are now moved to Spring.

The week before last they took their NWEA Reading Test.

Here are those results.
(Same tab things as above, expect now there is Blue= Exceeds (higher than benchmark).

This upcoming week we have NWEA math. I'm super nervous about this one. Yikes.

That's awesome! It's totally obvious you really worked with your kids and they came so far! What a great feeling.

Great job Mandy! We have Dibels Wednesday and I'm doing a Tiki theme with music, leis and Hawaiian shirts. NWEA is late for us this year, good because we have more time to prepare but I want to see their growth! You are awesome!

That is amazing! We have our other testing this week... we find out the results of these much quicker than we do the AIMS. :)
