I recently gave the STAR test to my (1st grade) students. The STAR test tests their reading level. Most of my students scored on a 2nd-3rd grade level. I will retest them in May and their scores should have come up by then. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to push these students further? They have gone WAY above what was expected of them, however, they have not ALL done that well. I was kinda thinking of getting some old 3rd grade reading books and 2nd grade reading books and group them based on their scores and for 30-45 minutes each day have them read those books to me and do different advanced reading activities with them. I am blessed to have an assistant and a foster grandmother- so I can have a group, my assistant have a group, and my foster grandma have a group-------does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks so much!
