K-5 Ed Tech Talk
Accessing Reading AND Math Reports in i-Ready
This year when teachers log in for the first time they are prompted to confirm the Subject and Grades that they teach.
If clicked through this prompt too quickly, the appropriate subjects will not be enabled.
If you are not seeing both subjects when you should be, (for example, Your students are enrolled in Math and Reading classes, but don’t see Math) here is the solution:
The next time you log into i-Ready, look for your name in blue in the top right of the page.
Click on the name and choose My Profile
Click on Edit profile. This is where you can make the adjustment and select Reading and Math.
Click on Save.
Once these steps are followed, everything should appear as it should.
Directions how to print Clever Badges for your class. (K-2 only) When a new student is added to your roster in PowerSchool, a Clever badge will be generated within 24 hours for that student.
Hour of Code is December 9th!
The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.
You can find more information about this event and explore coding activities by grade level by clicking here. The activities are fun, exciting, and just a click away to use during a station rotation activity or morning meeting!
If you plan on doing any activities during the week of December 9th-15th to celebrate Hour of Code, please e-mail pictures of your activities to firstname.lastname@example.org.
