I heard that there was a Spanish equivalent to the Informal Reading Inventory by Roe/Burns. We would love to know the title or what other schools use to assess their Spanish speaking students for Daily 5

We have used the Rigby Coleccion Kit for several years, and feel like it a great tool for grades 1-4–may not go quite high enough for those at 5th grade reading level and above. For 4th grade and above, we are moving to the EDL Reading assessment (Sp version of the DRA).
I am a bilingual teacher in Texas and we use the Spanish version of the DRA, which is the EDL. In addition, the DRA folks also produce a great resource called the Progress Monitoring Tool which is also available in Spanish and is appropriate for DRA/EDL reading Levels 4-60. For our intervention time, we have discovered a wonderful resource by Hopscotch(Pacific Learning) -SIL: El Sistema de la Intervención de Lectura. There are 3 kits; one for K-1 (orange) 2nd -3rd (green) and a new purple kit were using with 3-5. Depending on your district’s bilingual philosophy, these kits are great intervention support resources for getting students to read on grade level in Spanish. This is my 2nd year using SIL and as a bilingual teacher who has spent hours writing my own material due to lack of quality resources-SIL is an answer to my prayers! I highly recommend this for an RTI or interventon resource. it is similar to LLI but very reasonably priced!
