Katie School Update
I received Katie's DIBELS (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills) report today. Can I just say Wow! I currently can't find her DIBELS score from August, but they were nothing close to the scores I'm going to give you tonight. I'll break it down, so you can understand it. This test was just taken for the month of January.
- Initial Sounds (identifies a picture by its beginning sound by pointing to the picture or naming it. The student says the beginning sound of a given picture) - it's recommended she know at least 25 by January. Katie knew 40.
- Letter Naming (recognizes upper and lowercase letters out of order) - its recommended she know at least 40 by May. Katie knew 55.
- Phoneme Segmentation (tells all the sounds heard in spoken words) - its recommended she know at least 35 by May. Katie knew 58.
- Nonsense Words (blends sounds together that make nonsense words) - its recommened she know at least 25 by May. Katie knew 35.
