  • Growing Our Ballard Readers

    We are intentional at Ballard about knowing your child as a reader. Along with daily reading instruction, interventions, and assessments we want to see the growth in their reading abilities! Please take a look at the Next Step Guided Reading Assessment data that is checked three times a year: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Also remember to have them access their Literacy Footprints Digital account to continue their love of reading at home!
