This file contains a letter to the parents about the Benchmark. It also contains a chart that teachers can use for skills deficiencies. This will help teachers to plan for Guided Reading groups and find what skills they need to continue working on in the classroom. It also contains a chart with all of the skills, so the teacher can place an X for the skills that each student mastered on the Unit 1 Benchmark Assessment. This will help teachers determine what areas they need to continue working on in the classroom.
