Homework for break!🎄

Hello!

We have two new online programs students should use daily over the break.   We are very fortunate that Mr. AbuRus purchased these amazing programs for our students.  One is called Study Island and the other is Reading Eggs.   Both are accessed through Clever.   All students know how to get onto clever.  

To get started on Study Island choose the Study Island icon and then press “Mi Program”, choose a subject (math, ela, or science), choose “take diagnostic test”.   Have your child take the diagnostic test for each subject.  

To get started on Reading Eggs choose the Reading Eggs icon, choose “Reading Eggs”,  next students have a choice – take a placement test or start at lesson 1.   Choose one and begin.  

Students must take these diagnostic and placement tests on their own without any help.  

After they complete these assessments they can go into the programs and practice (without help) daily over the break.  

Thank you,

Happy holidays!
