(Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening)During the months of September and October teachers will be giving the PALS assessment in grades 1-3 and kindergarten. The information we gather from these assessments will show us the areas of strength and weakness in the students and help us to better plan our instruction for them. If you would like more information on PALS assessment you can log onto their website at: www.pals.virginia.edu. From the PALS website, parents can go into the Parents Corner via the Instructional Resources for lists of ideas, activities, and web links that can be done with children at home.
