Zachary’s scores on all 3passages were calculated and I found thathis median score of all 3 passages is 91%.He read Ann was a fuzzy (passage 5) with100% accuracy. But when I asked histeacher for any previous passages he hasread, I did come across one passage thatheread prior to me assessing him on thesame passage. On March 24thhis teacherassessed his fluency using A boy named(passage 4). At that time he was able toread 75whole words with 5 errors with 93%accuracy. I found that 3 out of the 5 errorswere morphological miscues and another error is consideredphonologically similar. When analyzing passage 6 I found many ofZachary’s miscues demonstrate that he is reading for meaning. He hadone self-correction and sounded out the wordcolorful. I found it interestingthat in the second sentence he said “they” instead ofthe, then further intothe story he said “the” instead ofthey. On passage 5 I believe his 100%accuracy is the result of him using his finger as a strategy to counteracthis struggle with tracking. He would have had 100% accuracy on passage4 if he would’ve used that same strategy. I believe that he simply forgotabout using his finger on passage 4 because it was the first passage heread.A goal for Zachary is to focus on each word he is reading and eliminatingskipping sentences when reading.There are several strategies to help improve Zachary’s struggle withtracking. One very important strategy is for him to follow along with hisfinger while he reads. He did use his finger sporadically, but he was notconsistent when using it. Another strategy is going to be strengthing hiscore muscles. I have read that building a child’s core muscles can improvetheir ability to follow along using just their eyes. I will also encourageZachary to read out loud. I believe hearing what he reads will help improvehis understanding of what he reads and improve his tracking.VocabularyI used the Core Vocabulary Screening form 1A to assess Zachary’sunderstanding of words that are appropriate for first grade. I think thisassessment will also help clarify his struggle with oral language and hisability to tell a story.Zachary understood the meaning of 83% of the vocabulary words. Hisscore indicates that he is just above benchmark. Although when dissecting
the 5 vocabulary words he did not know the meaning of, I found his choiceof words interesting. I found that 3 out of the 5 errors contain similarsounds as the targeted vocabulary word.
