You have no idea what you're talking about. 1) Allentown is not a huge town, it is a suburb of Philly 2) Pittsburgh is an actual city and hasn't relied on steel jobs in decades. Pittsburgh is all about tech and finance jobs now. They have Google. You clearly know nothing about either place no just quit while you're ahead.

Yes. Of course they cover physicals, thats mandated by the ACA (well for now). For primary care, I like One Medical Group. They have several locations around the city. There is a membership fee but its optional. OBGYN, I just started going to Mt. Sinai docs but may switch to Weill Cornell. Dentist, I've used Nassau Street Dental in FiDi bc it was close to my job. Btw - you shouldn't need a referral for a physical if its being performed by a PCP. You only need a referral for a specialist and that's only if you have an HMO plan which you shouldn't if you have GHI. They are PPO - no referral required.

You can't reason with the kind of people who just believe and pass along anything that is on the internet.

If you value your relationship with them, block or unfriend them (not on FB so don't know the terminology, but can't you set it so you don't see their posts but they don't know that?).

THE MONEY WAS ALREADY APPROVED AS PART OF A BUDGET. He had all legal authority to send the funds. GOP chose to "block" recently and he decided not to let them be the "dicks" that they decided to be in light of Trump. Remember, People, the Jews were not "invited" into Israel after WWII, but rather it was "announced" that they were TAKING this land back as a "rightful" place for them. Turns out, the rest of the world is mad at the folks already living there for not jumping on the proverbial band wagon and handing over their land, jobs, homes, etc. OBAMA worked on peace, not favoritism.

It really depends on the reading program being used by the school - levels vary depending on the program and usually the levels aren't just about "reading" a book in the early levels.

My educated guess: To get past level A - she needs letter and sound recognition for almost all letters and the ability to match initial sounds of words (mom, moon and milk start with /M/ - apple does not!) and recognizing rhyming words...did they just assess her again?

This is true, but they don't check to see how much the kids have mastered until the next round of assessments--so she could be level at in October, and have level A books all the way through january--but when they assess her in january, they could very well put her at level C and she'll never bring home Level B books.

And realistically, most schools can't afford to buy leveled books to send home with kids. Those books get lost....a LOT. My school has them, but only for use in school.

For reading levels A-J kids need to read at 90% or above with good comprehension (can tell beginning, middle and end without looking in book, can tell how a character changed, can tell reason why author wrote the story, etc.) for K and above, they need to read with 95% accuracy same comprehension. That means no substitutions, no leaving off a -ed ending or an -s ending. No insertions, no changing "don't" to "do not". Accuracy means completely perfect other than people's names. Sometimes kids can enjoy books they read at 80% accuracy because they really like the subject matter or are good with picture clues. But a book isn't considered a "good fit" until they read at the levels described first. [ Reply | More ]
