I also wanted to share Connor’s latest standardized testing scores with you. They test in Sept, January, and May. On a scale of 1000-3700, Connor scored a 2124 in September. This placed him in the Low Average category compared to both District and National average scores. However, in January, his score jumped 424 points to 2548 and is now rated High Average compared to both District and National average scores for mid-year testing!! On the Lexile reading scale, he went from a 225L (books like Fly Guy) to a 660L (books like Percy Jackson). I know that the vast majority of his improvement is from this program and I couldn’t be more proud of him. When I asked his Resource teacher what the average jump was, she said around 100 points between Sept and January and that a 400 point jump isn’t often seen over the course of a year. Is he ready to read Percy Jackson, no. But we have started reading Harry Potter as shared reading and he’s doing well with it. I keep his sections of reading small and just have him do a couple of sentences at a time, so he doesn’t get frustrated and quit. He’s enjoying the story and that’s the way I want it to stay.

Anyway, I just wanted to share his huge success with you. I can’t wait to see what his May testing says after we put another 3+ months of work in.
