New resource to support Spanish and English instruction
03 Sep 2021
In an earlier product update, we announced that Spanish Focus Skills are now available in Star Assessments.
This school year, you’ll also have access to a new resource that provides support for planning instruction for these essential skills, for pre-K through grade 3. This new resource, which is available in both English and Spanish, shares ideas for cross-language development (English and Spanish). It also includes a section for Spanish-only skills.
How do educators use this new resource?
- Administer the Star Reading Spanish assessment.
- Use the Star Reading Instructional Planning Report to identify the skills your students are ready to work on next.
- Access this new resource to find ideas on how to support student instruction and practice.
This new resource also includes transferable skills and prerequisite skills to help confirm a student’s knowledge before introducing new concepts, or to provide additional support for students struggling with the skill.
If you have Star Assessments, check out this great new resource. Choose Star Spanish > Reading Resources > Teacher Resource: Pre-Kindergarten to 3rd Grade Spanish Focus Skills Instructional Support.
