spb-reading-pictureSpringboard International Bilingual School (SIBS) understands that reading is one of the most important life skills. This year they have established a strong reading programme that is dedicated to elevating students’ reading to their proper grade reading level.

In order to establish a young learner’s reading level, SIBS started using standard American Common Core reading assessments. These benchmark assessments measure a child’s oral reading fluency in the area of English and are given multiple times throughout the year.  Students who do not meet established benchmarks for their grade level will be monitored more frequently and given the proper teaching and reading material to raise their fluency level. In preparation for their new reading assessments, SIBS purchased hundreds of grade level readers for each class and held workshops for their teaching staff to make the project more effective and rewarding.
