Are You Ready for Summer Reading?

Setting the expectation for reading EVERYDAY throughout the summer needs to be established in order to reduce summer learning loss. Making regular visits to the public library can be both FUN and BENEFICIAL.

Esper Library is located at 12929 Warren Ave, Dearborn. It is FREE to join and to borrow books. Most libraries also have Imagesummer programs that students can join. Consider visiting the library a few times a month or even weekly!

Here are some reading lists that are provided by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association, that students may enjoy reading:

3rd to 5th Grade

HAPPY READING

What’s Happening This Week?

Happy Monday!!

We hope you all had a great weekend. Last week marked the start of the NWEA testing window. This is the last round of testing for the year for grades Kindergarten through 5th.  We are confident  that all our students are striving to meet their goals and end the year with success.

As we approach the end of the school year, students reflecting on their learning and hard work is a great idea. Thinking about the Summer break and making resolutions as well as establishing routines of reading and continued practice are beneficial to minimizing Summer learning loss.

Last week Oakman welcomed this year’s Fordson seniors and cheered them with a huge congratulatory  clap out.

Please join us to review the two elementary language arts (reading and writing) programs that will be piloted next year:

  • Benchmark (Benchmark Learning)
  • ReadyGen (Pearson)

Dearborn Public Schools will be piloting each of these highly rated programs in grades kindergarten – 5th grade for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Teachers selected for the pilot will use the same program for the entire year. All teachers will receive training. A resource subcommittee reviewed six programs and rated each through a rigorous process designed to identify the most relevant instructional resources.

At the end of the pilot period it is anticipated that an elementary language arts program will be recommended for adoption for the 20-21 school year for all elementary classrooms.
