Brain Boost Available NOW in the OLS
We are very excited to announce that our new and returning managed public school students will be able to participate in the Brain Boost Summer Enrichment program. The program is for students in grades K–12. The goal of this new program is to offer a fun and engaging in-platform experience within the Online School, especially for newly enrolled students to give them time to experience our platform before regular school starts in the fall.
Students in kindergarten to sixth grade will participate in the courses using Stride Math and Stride ELA. In these courses the students will earn coins to play fun and educational math and language arts games. There are different kinds of games, including Stride Academy, Space Coaster, and Koofu’s Quest. The Introduction to Stride video will show students how to access Stride, how to answer questions, where to find Stride games, and more. Any coins, badges or star points earned over the summer will carry over into the school year, giving those students a pool of earned items to utilize as of the first day of school.

You can also change up your reading space to make it fun and new! Some ideas are: reading outside, build a fort-then read in it, reading during a picnic, or read a book in bed. This website has more creative reading challenge ideas: https://www.ateachableteacher.com/free-reading-challenge/
- Draw a map of your bedroom then measure the distance between the furniture you drew with a ruler.
- Make different shapes out of Play Doh or clay. Tell a family member how many sides and vertices (corners/angles) each shape has and what its name is.
- Write or draw all the ways you can make 10.
