STRIDE ACADEMY

Your students have taken a GAP assessment in STRIDE ACADEMY. This creates math, reading and language arts lessons tailored to your student's needs. Students will be coming home with their log in and school code so they may access this awesome program at home. It can be accessed through any device that has wifi. We would like to see students use Stride from home if possible at least 60 minutes a week. It is a great tool to close any gaps your students may have and push them to the next level in their learning.

Guided Reading Levels

Many parents were given their child's DRA (reading) level at their child's conference, and now you are wondering how to shop for or find books that are on their level. Well there are several online resources to help. On the Scholastic website there is a book wizard you type in the title and it will give you the level for many books. However, you do need to select the search for DRA level. There are many different leveling systems and our district primarily uses DRA. Of course not all books will be in there, but hopefully this will help!
