Celebrating 10 Years!!
We are excited to announce that Cisneros is celebrating its 10th year. Stay tuned to see what exciting plans we have made to celebrate.
From Monday, Janurary 12th till Friday, Janurary 30th, our Cisneros students will be taking the CIRCLE test. This is the middle of the year test to see the growth from the begining of the year. The test will cover the following areas:
1. Rapid letter knowledge
2. Rapid vocabualry knowledge
3. Listening (are the two words the same)
4. Rhyming 1 (do two given words rhyme)
5. Rhyming 2 (coming up with a rhyming word)
6. Alliteration (do the words begin with the same sound)
7. Words in a Sentence (moving cubes to count the words in a sentence)
8. Syllabication (clapping how many syllables in a word)
9. Onset Rime (/m/.../om/ what's the word?)
Remember, these are the stepping stones to have your child ready to read and ready for kindergarten. Keep working at home with your child on those areas and ask your child's teacher for any ideas on how to help your child.
