i-Ready login

Parent instructions to log on to i-Ready (our online program) at home –

1. Go to https://login.i-ready.com/

2. Click on the K-1 Card Login button

3. Use your child’s i-Ready log in card (in the zipper pouch of your child’s binder) to log your child in (your child knows how to log him/herself in at this point)

4. Click on the big green button that says “Next Lesson” to begin

5. After they complete the lesson, click on the “To Do” tab to continue to another lesson


How to read with a beginning reader:

  • Encourage your child to use his/her finger to point to each word.
  • Read a sentence and have your child repeat it.
  • Take turns reading a sentence each or page each.
  • Talk about the story as you read it. What do you think will happen next? What does the story remind you of? How do you think the character feels?
  • Don't be afraid to read the same book again. Repeated reading helps build reading fluency!
  • 15-20 minutes of reading is plenty for a beginning reader.
  • Happy Reading!🙂

School Counselor Ms. Debbie

This is a time we never quite expected. Most children do not handle change and stress well. Keeping a schedule, reinforcing rules, and good

communication is important. Children experience all the emotions we do without coping skills.

The following categories can be googled for helping children with stress, anxiety, depression and anger:

Tai Chi For Kids


Relaxation for kids

Relaxation For Children - Music for Learning, Quiet, Positive ...


Letting go anger



Parents may use these ideas for strategies::

Good luck to all of us during such an historical time. Please use this as a positive time to bond with your child. In life we all face struggles, springboard off this stressful time to teach your child positive coping skills. Play, exercise, art, music, reading, and creative play are

great strategies through stressful times. Modeling coping skills is essential for lifelong learning. Parents Are Their Child’s First Teachers.
