Study Island will no longer be available to Badillo students. It is being replaced by i-Ready. Besides being a diagnostic tool, is is a learning tool for language arts including phonics, phonological awareness, vocabulary, high frequency words, and comprehension.
i-Ready is our new assessment tool. It will replace STAR Reading and STAR Math. The Universal testing window is Aug. 22 to Sept. 16. We will then test again at the beginning of each trimester. These scores will determine our AR and AM reading levels. The i-Ready scores are in Lexile numbers. We will have a chart that will convert Lexile scores into AR grade level scores of which my books and the library books are listed.
i-Ready has lessons that have been specifically chosen for your child through the diagnostic test he/she has taken. These lessons will replace STUDY ISLAND lessons. i-Ready lessons can be done at school and at home. We may be even assigning lessons for homework. We will have an opportunity during small group time for your child to work on i-Ready lessons. When your child works on a lesson, I will able to check their progress. I will know if your child is not working.
