This year Argeniz turned More of those extra resources to the crucial Issue of Early Reading instruction. First the school devised a diagnostic exam and gave it to All of its kindergarteners at the end of last year. The children who scored the lowest were put in two first Grade classes of 18 Stu dents each. Then the seven Low est performing children in each of those classes were identified for the null out class. That created two classes of 11 and one of 14 for the first hours of each Day. During that time All three classes concen trate entirely on Reading writ ing and listening skills. In the afternoon the 14 students in the pull out class go Back to their regular classrooms for their other subjects. Arentz staffed the extra morning class by reassigning two curriculum coordinators who had t had their own class rooms for three years one was whole language Reading coordinator Mary Meier the other was Barbara Dowdell a science coordinator whose salary is paid by Federal Magnet school Money then she recruited teaching assistants from higher Grade classrooms to spend their mornings in the new class finally she tapped a third ass St ant who had served mostly As a Hall Monitor the previous year something had to give and Early intervention is what makes the Arentz said attention attention Many children arriving at the school Are not just unfamiliar with letters and books Tiey have to be introduced to the entire culture of school particularly the need to pay attention to teachers and focus on learn ing Arentz and Meier said the distract Emty of the first graders has been one of the most difficult obstacles to Over come they said even the conversation about Highland for est which engaged most of the students lost a few of them at times what kind of water Are you going to see at Highland for est " Meier asked at one Point.

Meier says even three can be one too Many. Some of the Chil Dren Are so distract Ible that at times she has to keep a hand on each child to keep him or her on task. On a recent Day she started a lesson Lmh a group of three boys by asking them to write the letter that sounds like in then she moved on to Elemen tary words like it and making sure the children sounded out the words before writing them finally the boys worked on sound no out and writing longer words like hat and but the learn ing did t always stick. When Meier asked them to try the sen tence i like frogs one of the boys who had spelled frogs correctly a few minutes earlier wrote i like Rafos still Meier says the class has made a huge difference m the abilities of most of the students and m the Outlook for the school without the extra Atten Tion there would have been Little Hope for Many of the Chil Dren to thrive m regular class room next year it seems As if your Bottom k is get farther and farther be she said going along As one of 25 year after year is not some to rate Rivon in
