As we begin the month of February, teachers are spending time reviewing data gathered from the winter benchmark assessment in reading and math. They respond to the data by creating plans to support students who are not making the expected growth. These plans include the creation of small group instruction, adjustments of groups, and the use of different strategies. As we partner with parents, we provide suggestions and materials that families can use to further support students.
