Copy of Snippet "Gr. 2 Tier 2A to Tier 1 (Fluency)"

To the Caretakers of: {formtext: name=first}{formtext: name=last}

We have enjoyed partnering with you so far this year to help your child grow! As you know, your child’s beginning of the year data collection indicated that they would benefit from additional support in reading through the RTI (Response to Intervention) Process. Our teachers collected our first progress monitoring data point with your child on the week of 10/9. We are so proud of {=first}for the growth we have seen in their reading. At this time, we feel that {=first}can move back to Tier 1 support with their homeroom teacher and they will not need to continue to attend the RTI live lessons at this time. 

The data used to make this decision was collected at the beginning of the year and most recently using the Easy CBM 2nd Grade Fluency Passages. At the beginning of the year, {=first} read {formtext: name=BOY WPM} words per minute. Last week, during our progress monitoring live lesson, {=first} read {formtext: name=Progress Monitoring WPM} words per minute. Students who are reading grade-level passages at 50 words per minute or higher are meeting reading fluency grade-level expectations at this time of the year. 

Thank you so much for being on our team! We truly believe that their academic growth shown is a direct result of their compliance in their RTI intervention thus far as well as all of your hard work and support at home. Now that they are reading fluently on grade-level passages, we can begin to work more on comprehension practice. It is imperative that they continue to complete their iReady minutes each week and be supported at home in their reading.  Please have them continue to read books at home and talk about what they have read. If you would like further ideas or activities to do at home, please feel free to reach out to me!

****Please note, this decision was made based on the most recent data we have collected and we will continue to monitor your student’s growth throughout the year. If at any time, their updated data indicates they need more support again, we will be putting more support back in place for them. ****
