Daily Requirements1

Hello Parents,

Is your child reading and doing MY-ON?  We are monitoring the progress of each student and classroom.

Please use the materials given to you in the parent meetings in the classroom to help your child with the strategies. They are found at the bottom of this post in case you lost your papers.

Use the rope we gave you. Use the bookmarks which are translated. Go online and check out all these fun websites to practice and learn from.

Remember at the end of January we will be doing a new round of NWEA testing and all this reading and practice will count!

All students should have their Id and password for this site. This site provides valuable reading and comprehension skills. All students are required to use it daily for 20-30 minutes. Mr. Awada checks all students’ usage on this site.

All students should have access to this math site and be using it daily. By using this site, students are able to practice essential skills that align with classroom instruction.
Ask your child if their teacher has given them access to this site.

NWEA Practice Sites
As you know, the NWEA is a very important assessment as it measures our students’ learning growth over time. Please allow your child to access these sites at home as they will provide practice at their individual RIT score in both reading and math.
