You may be curious as to what "DI- BELS" tests are and what we use them fbr. DIBELS is an acronym that stands for Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills. In simple English, it's a reading as- sessment. DIBELS tests are short (one minute) flu- ency measures used to regularly monitor the de- velopment of early litera- cy and early reading skills. The Basic Early Liter- acy Skills that are assessed vary with the level of the student. Students in grades K-2 are tested with the measures of Phonemic Awareness (the child's abil- ity at identifying and pro- ducing the beginning sound of a given word as well as the ability to produce the in- dividual sounds within a given word) and Alphabet- ic Principal and Phonics (the child's knowledge of letter-sound correspondence as well as their ability to blend letters to form unFa- miliar words). These assessments are known as Initial Sound Flu- ency (ISF), Phonemic Seg- mentation Fluency (PSF), and Nonsense Word Flu- ency (NWF). Students in grades 1-6 are tested with the measure of Accuracy and Fluency with Connected Text tthe child's ability at reading connected text in grade- level materials) and the measure of Comprehen- sion (the child's ability to understand verbally read connected text). These as- sessments are known as Oral Reading Fluency (ORF) and Retell Fluency (tiFF). DIBELS measures, by design, are indicators of each of the Basic Early Literacy Skills. It is de- signed to be an indicator of the students' progress to- ward the long-term out- come of acquiring the lit- eracy skill. DIBELS indi- cate, also. if fitrther assess- ing or testing is needed to determine the students' needs. Students in PR Elemen- tary are tested with "bench- mark" assessments three times a year All students in K-6 are tested. The bench- mark goals represent nfin--] imum levels ofpertbnnance 1 for all students to reach in order to be considered on track for becoming a read- er. A student who is below benchmark will be tested further to determine the reason tbr the low score. Teachers can then work on the skill one on one or in small groups to get the stu- dent(s) up to benchmark. These students will be test- ed using "Progress Moni- toring" DIBELS assess- ments to see if adequate gains are being made.

Miss Thompson's class was studying the Arctic and decided to build an igloo from 237 milk jugs for a hands-on lesson. The project was completed with volunteer help after about six hour's work and now serves as the class' "Reading Igloo" according to Thompson.

By Sarah Kastner PARK RIVER. N.D. - ...... On Friday, Jan. 20, the thiM grade got together with the Kindergarten m "Hibernate and Read". The Kindergarteners were studying bears and how they hibernate in winter. Each 3rd grader partnered with a Kindergartcncr to read with the lights off in the Elementary gyln. The 3rd graders brought blankets and flashlights, and the Kindergarteners supplied stuflid bears and books. Students in both grades practiced reading aloud as they had a variety of books at different levels. Many 3rd graders remembered participating in "Hibernate and Read" as Kindergarmers. They thought it was special this year because they were the older students and have grown so much in their reading abilities.
