How to Know If Your Child Is Reading at Grade Level
Watch more Child Education videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/386906-How-to-Know-If-Your-Child-Is-Reading-at-Grade-Level Although students in each grade level exhibit a range of reading abilities, the Lexile Reader and Text Measures make it possible to map their reading ability to typical grade-level scores. Step 1: Consult a grade equivalence chart Consult an online Lexile grade-level equivalence chart. The chart shows a range of Lexile scores for each grade level at its website. Step 2: Check your child's report card Check your child's report card to see whether it lists a Lexile reading score. If it does, compare the score with the Reader Measures in the chart to determine the child's reading level. Tip Ask your child's teacher if the school uses the Lexile index if a score does not appear in the report card. Step 3: Have lexile score measured Have the child's Lexile score measured at a private learning center that uses the index if the child's school does not. Tip Lexile is used in some way in all 50 states. Step 4: Compare text measures Compare the Lexile text measures for any book the child wants to read with the Text Measures in the grade-equivalence chart to determine the grade level the books correspond to. Did You Know? The world's oldest book, The Diamond Sutra, was published in 868 C.E.

How to Increase Your Child's Reading Grade Level
In today's episode, I discuss how to increase your child's grade reading level. In a nutshell, we need to remove the blame from the students. Every good educator knows (trigger warning) that the success of their children/students depends on their ability to effectively communicate ideas and principles to said children. We also need to give them the confidence that they can increase their reading level. If they have a positive outlook on improvement, results are sure to follow. That's why I promote my Mnemonic Phonic Technique in almost every video--it teaches kids the 72 Orton phonograms which are the key to learning English sounds. Watch it here for free: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uX_FZN-1OZ8 Sources: The Spalding method is effective in teaching kids to read (and increasing reading levels) and raises test scores: http://www.spalding.org/images/pdf/wrtrprogram/research/Spalding-year1_full.pdf http://www.cusd80.com/cms/lib6/AZ01001175/centricity/domain/1224/Why_Spalding_Works.pdf We have our Flash Card Phonogram Pack available for purchase--they come in black and white.

Identify 10-15 "general academic words" per grade level
Standardized tests measure students' reading comprehension--however it's not just their understanding of the passage(s) that is being assessed. Eighty-five percent of achievement on these tests is based on understanding the academic language within the questions (Marilee Sprenger, 101 Strategies to Make Academic Vocabulary Stick). This "academic language" refers to the universal and cross-curricular words found in prompts, questions, and directions. They reveal the specific task students are asked to perform (e.g., compare, explain, argue, interpret, etc.). They tell students what to do and the type of information required in the answer/response (e.g., best, most likely, cite evidence, etc.). http://www.smekenseducation.com/Identify-10-15-General-Academic-Words-per-Grade-Level.html

Cheap Method To Measure Grade
It's critically important that water from gutter downspouts and roof overhangs drains away from your house. You need pitch or grade--a slope--away from your house of at least 1/8" per foot. Use this cheap but accurate method to measure grade and make sure you have good drainage. This method is also great for measuring slope under a deck or porch. Make certain water flows away from your house!

How to Encourage Children to Read | Reading Lessons
Watch more How to Teach Your Child to Read videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/460468-How-to-Encourage-Children-to-Read-Reading-Lessons Hi. my name is Anne Glass. I'm a reading and learning specialist at a private school in New York City and I work with Kindergarteners through 3rd graders on Reading, Word Study, and Writing Skills. In addition to be a reading specialist and learning specialist, I'm also a parent and today I'm going to talk to you about topics in reading. Almost every school from at least first grade on, requires students to read about 20 -30 minutes each night. Now getting your child to actually sit down and read the book can often be a challenge and I hear from parents all the time that it usually culminates in a battle involving bribery, threats, pleading, and all kinds of drama. There are some things you can do to avoid getting to this point. The first one is to model your own reading. If your child sees you reading and enjoying a book, he's going to be much more likely to sit down and do it. It's a great way to avoid a do as a say and not as I do scenario. And children who grow up in a household where reading is a desired activity are much more likely to be independent readers on their own. The next suggestion is to make sure your child has a designated reading place. That could be in bed, or a special chair, or on the sofa, or just anywhere in your home where he feels comfortable reading. You can even have a discussion around that, discussing where you enjoy reading. You might have a special chair, and you can talk about how that feels comfortable to you and its a place where you can really concentrate and create a quiet bubble for reading for yourself. Another important tip for enforcing reading time at home and making it a pleasant thing to do is to eliminate possible distractions. That means turning off the TV, and turning off the computer, and also making sure that noisy siblings are out of the way and quiet, which I know is easier said than done. It's also completely acceptable to provide a small bribe or gimmick to your child if you think that will motivate them to start reading. I recently gave my son a book light and he actually thought it was fantastic and he looks forward every night to getting into bed at bedtime and pulling the covers up over his head, turning on his book light, and reading for about a half an hour. So that's actually worked out really nicely, and it felt like a treat for him and it made it something fun to do, and he's also told me that it just creates silence around him where its just him and his book. One gimmick that I would advise against, and I've seen a few of these, are these bookmarks that have a digital clock on them and you can actually set the clock for the 20 or 30 minutes that is required for reading. The problem with this is that its the only thing your childs going to pay attention to and they will watch the minutes tick down until the required time is up. So there's never going to be an opportunity for that child to really dig into the book and have the pleasure of losing himself in a story.

10 Tips to Improve Your Reading Comprehension
10 Tips to Improve Your Reading Comprehension 1. "Never read a book without a pen in your hand." ~ Benjamin Franklin - That's great advice whether you write in your books or take notes in a notebook. Personally, I write, scribble, highlight, argue and draw symbols in all my books. 2. Read a whole paragraph / section BEFORE you stop to highlight or take a note. Don't stop right when you see something interesting; keep reading to get the "big picture" or context of what stood out to you. Then "reread" when you make your notes. 3. Read important sections out loud. A person reads much slower when you read out loud than when you read silently, but studies show that if you read out loud, you tend to retain things better because you're engaging multiple senses (hearing and seeing). 4. Read silently with quick "check-marks." There are times when you should read silently and simply use a pencil to "check" sections in the margins you want to go back and reread later. This will help you get through a book quicker without being distracted by stopping to highlight or write. 5. Explain what you read. When you finish a chapter / section of a book, take a break and "think" about what you've read and, in your mind, "explain it" to someone. See if you can structure your thoughts so as to be able to repeat back to someone what you've read. This is a great exercise. I do this A LOT when I read - and actually "talk through it" out loud to myself walking around my office or in the car. 6. Learn to "X-ray" a book by reviewing the Table of Contents and only reading the sections / chapters that will be benefit you. And don't feel like you have to read an entire book. 7. Pay attention to summary words - "therefore" or "as a result" or "in conclusion." When you see a summary / conclusion word, make sure you understand the author's points and argument that has led to his conclusion. 8. Circle / Underline key words in a sentence. 9. Mark words you don't know - and look them up! If you have a Kindle this is much easier. Looking up words you don't know increases your understanding of the author's intent, but it also increases your vocabulary! 10. You should read How to Read a Book by Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren. This is a "must read" book! You can get a great price on it at Amazon or WTSBooks.com.

Fractions on a Number Line Song | 3rd Grade & 4th Grade
🍎 Enjoy our growing library of math videos at https://www.numberock.com 🍎 Q. Why do we learn about fractions on a number line? A. When we represent fractions on a number line, we can see in a visual way the size of a given fraction vs. another fraction, allowing us to deepen our understanding of the values that fractions represent. Number lines can also help us see how 1/4 is equal to 2/8, for example, by allowing us to see logical proof of how 2 intervals of 1/8th are the same as 1 interval of 1/4. As students expand their understanding of values beyond whole numbers, they can broaden their relationships to real world concepts of things like money, time and the mechanics of equitable sharing. Number lines as they relate to fractions can can act as an effective model to help students meaningfully understand what is happening in their environment when dealing with those real world concepts. Q. What grade levels does our Fractions on a Number Line Song target? A. 3rd Grade - 4th Grade Q. Where did you guys come from? A. Numberock is a project that I, Mr. Hehn, began as a 5th Grade math teacher of 7 years. It came together after years of experimenting with my lessons trying to figure out the best way to help my students retain the math concepts they were learning. Q. Does Numberock drive real results in the classroom? A. I knew I found the secret sauce when not only were my students retaining the concepts longer, they were singing the songs outside of the classroom during recess and at home with their parents during dinnertime. The songs were so catchy, my students couldn't get the math songs out of their head! During testing, I often found my students humming the melodies in order to jostle their memory of a rule or problem solving process. As we've all experienced, there is something about the power of music that allows us to retain information easier and for longer periods of time. Without getting into the finer details of multi-sensory learning and how it often helps the students who most need the help, the power of a catchy song is hard to deny. Q. I love these math songs. Where can I experience more of what NUMBEROCK has to offer? We have additional teaching resources that are always expanding over at https://www.numberock.com. For the low price of $4.95/month, premium members gain access to video-aligned activities like worksheets, printable posters/anchor charts, task cards, self-graded assessments, games, and more. Coming Soon: 1. Self-Graded Assessments | These will soon be available for every Common Core and TEKS standard from 2nd-6th Grade so you'll be able to track and monitor student progress while your students complete standards-aligned quizzes that are integrated with the NUMBEROCK video they just watched. 2. Number Notes | Were currently working on creating exercises where students will be able to take notes artistically on printable templates featuring characters from the videos. Research has shown that this will help to integrate their artistic side side of the student's brain with the mathematical side of their brain which helps with long-term memory retention. Our own research has shown us that teacher's who use start using these templates love them! It seems to be a natural fit as we move beyond our unique auditory learning tools into visual learning tools, that when used in concert, cater to the different types of learners that you teach everyday. Hope to see you at https://numberock.com! This video addresses the following Common Core Standards and TEKS Standards : Aligned with Common Core Standards 3.NF.A.2 | 3.NF.2 Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram. 3.NF.A.2a | 3.NF.2a Represent a fraction 1/b on a number line diagram by defining the interval from 0 to 1 as the whole and partitioning it into b equal parts. Recognize that each part has size 1/b and that the endpoint of the part based at 0 locates the number 1/b on the number line. 3.NF.A.2.b | 3.NF.2b Represent a fraction a/b on a number line diagram by marking off a lengths 1/b from 0. Recognize that the resulting interval has size a/b and that its endpoint locates the number a/b on the number line. Aligned with TEKS Standards:: 3.3A The student is expected to represent fractions greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 using concrete objects and pictorial models, including strip diagrams and number lines. 3.3B The student is expected to determine the corresponding fraction greater than zero and less than or equal to one with denominators of 2, 3, 4, 6, and 8 given a specified point on a number line. 3.7A The student is expected to represent fractions of halves, fourths, and eighths as distances from zero on a number line.

a teaching student
Why do some children learn to read easily and some children struggle? It’s a question that our schools and even our government have spent billions of dollars trying to answer. It’s a complex problem. Some children have learning disabilities, others do not speak English as their first language and still others come from families so stressed by poverty that they cannot provide the support their children need to learn to read easily. What does the stress of poverty have to do with learning to read? The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) was created in 1988 by the federal government. It tests not all, but many samples of students representing the geographical, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity of students in our country. The results of the tests are compared based on a variety of variables, including the finances of the families of children who are taking the test. The test results indicate that the reading scores of children in all grades who are eligible for Free Breakfast and Lunch are statistically lower than the scores of students whose families are adjudged able to afford to pay for in-school meals. These scores show that a child’s chances of becoming a successful reader are impacted by the financial situation of their families. Because of the high percentage of families in Jasper County whose income is low enough to qualify for supplemental nutrition assistance and/or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, all Jasper County public schools participate in the CEP program. Marva Tigner, Chief of Academics for the Jasper County School District, noted “interventions” the district provides for students who struggle with reading The best way to ensure students learn to read is to start early. In 2017 the district hired Dr. Laquandra Stevenson as their Early Childhood Coordinator. She is having success training pre-school through second-grade teachers. Stevenson supports teachers in data analysis, implementation of standards-based curriculum, on-site classroom support and curriculum development. She also conducts classroom observations and provides feedback to teachers. The 2016-17 results from the Developmental Reading Assessment indicate student growth from 41 percent to 86 percent. Progress in reading is often during second grade. That is when reading comprehension becomes a bigger focus. In the Jasper County schools, if students are determined to be reading one to one-and-half grades below their grade level they are entered into the Level Literacy Intervention program (LLI). In the 2015-16 school year, teachers specially trained in reading instruction began using individual LLI kits for each child. Each child works through the levels in their kit as their own pace until they are reading at grade level. Once that happens, teachers can move on to helping other students. Students with severe reading problems —reading two or more grades below their grade level— are enrolled in the System 44 program. System 44 is a reading program supported with on-going teacher training from the Scholastic company. It was implemented in the middle school in 2014 and in the two elementary schools since 2017. Data based on regular evaluations indicates that the overwhelming numbers of Jasper County students in grades 3-8 are making significant improvement in reading. Changes and adjustments suggested by Scholastic were planned for the 2017-18 school year and those results will be available in the fall of 2018. Show love through reading Writing is like silent speaking while reading is like listening with your eyes and sometimes with your mouth if you are reading aloud. That is why a child who is encouraged to carry on conversations with adults and is read to at an early age is better prepared to learn to read. One of the most powerful things a parent can do for a young child is hold the child while reading to him or her. Children are like love sponges; they can never get enough love. By holding the child and giving that child your undivided attention you are signaling love. Then you add reading an age-appropriate book to the child and the message you are sending is: Reading is one of the ways parents and children show love for each other. The best way to deliver that kind of message is by making it a habit. Many parents like to read to a child at bedtime. It becomes a way for them to relax together and end a day on a peaceful, loving note. As the child grows, he or she can read to a younger child at bedtime. That will help both children become better readers. When a young child learns to read on his own, parents or older siblings can become listeners. Eventually children and teenagers can share books with parents and everyone can read the same book and discuss it.

Meet the Experts: Dr. Louisa Moats (Teachers)
Teachers have the difficult tasks of not only teaching a child how to read, but also determining how to help them if they are struggling. Dr. Louisa Moats gives examples of how teachers can be better prepared to enter the classroom and identify potential reading difficulties in their students. For instance, she discusses the importance of not only teaching children the alphabet, but also showing them how to associate sounds with letters. She also shares an inspirational story about one teacher who came to her distraught because his students were moving onto the next grade level without being able to read. After learning some effective methods for teaching children to read, he is now passing students with flying colors. For more information about teaching kids to read and helping those who struggle, visit www.readingrockets.org. Reading Rockets is a national education service of public television station WETA. Funding is provided by a grant from the U.S.

Using Guided Reading to Strengthen Reading Skills at the Fluent Level, K-3
http://www.berproducts.org/video-training/literacy/guided-reading/using-guided-reading-strengthen-students-reading-skills-at-emergent-dveloping-fluent-levels-grades-k-3.html As children progress to near-fluent and fluent levels of literacy, they continue to reap great benefits from the structure and support that guided reading provides. In small, flexible guided reading groups young readers are able to strengthen their fluency, comprehension, and higher-level thinking skills over a wide variety of text, both fiction and nonfiction. Children learn how to draw meaning from and make connections with increasingly sophisticated text. In this video training program viewers see near-fluent and fluent-level readers actively engaged in guided reading lessons. Nancy Paulson and Nancy Nos, exceptional guided reading practitioners, provide instructional models, explanations, and suggestions for how to develop practical, meaningful guided reading experiences for young, fluent readers. The texts used in these demonstrations come from a variety of sources rather than a single publisher. The instructional strategies are also varied and reflect good literacy-teaching practices rather than a narrow philosophical viewpoint.
