Ange’s Book Nook and the DRA

It has been a very busy start to the school year in Ange’s Book Nook. Getting to know all of the eager readers and pre-readers from JK-Gr.4 has been wonderful. This month, I’ve been sitting down with each student to assess where their reading level is at using the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA). The DRA is an incredible tool that helps me assess and document student performance in reading proficiency, reading engagement, oral reading fluency and comprehension. Once individual reading levels are determined I will continue to work one-on-one with each student throughout the school year, practicing and building on their individual levels, skills and goals. Happy reading everyone!
