updated charts w/ blank
We are getting ready for our next SEP conferences next week and my cute co-workers and I were discussing how we could get our parents on board with LEXILE reading levels vs. AR reading levels. Sadly, we lost our AR this year... we are missing the accountability and motivation that it gave to all the students, however, we've been told it's history!
All of our library books were labeled with color dots on the spine of the book for easy choosing. Many teachers did the same thing in their classroom libraries to enable the students to easily get a "good choice" book. We thought it was a good idea to help the parents see the connection between their student's SRI reading scores and LEXILE level.
We converted a chart to match Creekside's leveled colors (dots).
We plan to discuss this with our parents and students at SEPS... hopefully clearing things up a bit and getting us all on the same playing field.
