F&P Testing Tips:
  • First Test (November) - NON-FICTION
  • Second Test (March) - FICTION
  • Third Test (June) - NON-FICTION
  • Students in 5th grade over letter 'T' do not have to read the selection out loud to you. You may, however, have them read you a paragraph after you question them to do a quick check for fluency.
  • For your 'at or above level' readers, borrow several books at the higher levels, have the kids read ahead and wait 'on-deck' to be called and questioned on their reading. This will save lots of time!
