Academic Performance in a content area Math, Reading, Science, Art) May include areas of difficulty

Reading: Do partner reading- peers helping each other through familiar books; more able readers may pair well with more beginning readers, but both need to play an active role (parallel reading) Strengthen their reading skills by reading predictable books (books with few words, much repetition, and many pictures) Learn phonics in small groups with children at similar skill levels

Reading: Elidia participates in daily 5 every morning where she has the opportunity to read alone and with a partner. She is usually in the same group, with others that fall around her developmental level. She is also placed with children more accelerated than her. This is good because it allows Elidia to listen to other more fluent readers read. She can also get help from her peers. Elidia needs to continue working on strengthening her ability to read predictable books, using pictures to help her read familiar words.

Math: Count and sort, make sets, do simple addition and subtraction using real materials, and make graphs Practice writing numbers Continue hands-on exploration of size, shape, length, and volume Art: Need many avenues building with blocks, painting, working with clay to express what they know Science: Favorite themes for this age my body, seasonal themes in nature (snow, winter, hibernation)

Math: Elidia works better when she has manipulates because she is a very hands-on and visual learners. She can use blocks to count and pictures to help her add and subtract.
