Superkids Online Information for K-2 Parents
Superkids is one of the reading and writing programs we use at school in kindergarten, first, and second grades. It has an online component students can use at home. If you have a K-2 student, today you should have received an email from the Superkids Reading program inviting you to create an account. Students can access Superkids through this parent created account.
Superkids uses animal icons as passwords. Your classroom teacher will let you know which animal icon to use for his/her password. Click HERE for an info sheet on how to login to Superkids. Teachers may not be requiring use of the Superkids app at this time and it is okay to wait to follow the account set-up instructions until your child is asked to use Superkids. If you did not receive the email (only 1 parent did and we are happy to add additional parents), please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get an account.
