Parent Reading Meeting on October 3rd

September 21, 2022 no comments Teri Nieveen Categories Uncategorized

Freeman Public Schools believes in the importance of reading and we are dedicated to meeting the needs of each of our students.  Students receive focused instruction in the Big 5 of reading: phonological awareness, phonics, reading fluency, vocabulary, and reading comprehension.  These areas are the foundation for future learning.  

In 2018, the legislature passed the Nebraska Reading Improvement Act, designed to address student reading needs in grades K-3.  Students in grades K-3 are screened three times during the year to identify potential strengths and areas of improvement, and to determine supplemental instruction and intervention.

At Freeman, MAP Growth, NSCAS Growth, and MAP Reading Fluency are assessments administered to grades K-6.  MAP Growth and MAP Reading Fluency are used for state identification for the K-3 Reading Improvement Act. The information from all assessments guides instruction in the classrooms.

A meeting addressing the Nebraska READS Act and Title 1 Reading will be held October 3 at 6:30 pm in the Freeman Media Center and is open to all parents.  If you are unable to attend the meeting or have questions about reading at Freeman Elementary, please contact elementary principal Mrs. Erin Sieh or Mrs. Teri Nieveen, Title 1 reading teacher.
