First and second grade teachers administered the test to students this fall. Eighty-one percent of first grade students were at or above grade level, and seventy-five percent of second graders were at or above grade level at the beginning of the year. Each year Monett Elementary School continues to grow in the area of reading. As a building, we focus our own learning on how to meet each child’s need. Teachers strive to provide personalized lessons that promote academic growth for all students.
Parents can make a difference in a child’s reading ability by spending time reading with him/her. Reading with your child is a wonderful way to build his/her vocabulary and enhance his/her reading skills. Bedtime rituals that include reading together foster these skills. This can be a special time at the end of the day for you and your child. Peter Gorski, M.D., chair of the early childhood committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics, states "More than anything, you want him to associate reading with emotional warmth and fun," he says.
