Reading - Fountas and Pinnell (F&P) & Reading Levels

What is Fountas and Pinnell?

Fountas and Pinnell or (F&P) helps teachers determine your child's reading level by having the students read a book out loud and answer questions. Reading levles are represented with letters. Example your child's reading level could be a B. 

What is a reading level? 

A reading level is simply a measure of your child’s ability to read text. It reflects how well your little one can read independently. Importantly, reading levels help you choose books that are a good match for your child while still presenting a challenge.

These levels are meant to be helpful, not stressful. They don’t limit your child but, rather, help them blossom into a fluent, excited reader.

When your child reads books that are appropriate for their current reading level, it boosts their confidence so they can truly enjoy reading!

Math - Envisions Beginning of the Year Assessment 

What is Envisions?

Envisions is the math program used in all grades at P.S. 28. Envision math combines problem-based learning with visual learning. Students learn more about math by solving rich, reality-based problems. They gain a deeper, clearer understanding of math concepts with visual models and scaffolds in every lesson.

How are my students assessed?

With the Envisions program, students take tests after each unit along with three cumulative assessments. The cumulative assessment has questions that assess skills and standards that they will learn throughout the year. At the beginning of the year students take this assessment as a way to evaluate where they are starting. They are then reevaluated at the middle of the year and the end of the year to see growth.
