HAVE A GREAT SUMMER, PIONEERS!

If you’d like a way to have your student stay current with their math and reading skills over the summer, but aren’t sure to make that happen, consider having them use iReady. While we’ve focused on using iReady as part of our math and reading intervention program, it also makes a great tool in giving students personalized and targeted lessons in areas they need to work in. They can access the program from home at www.clever.com/in/chicousd and login using their Google login information. They can practice both reading and math, but please keep in mind that research has shown the optimal amount of time students should use the program is only 45 minutes per week per subject, so in this case, less is more! Keeping students’ minds engaged over the summer will help them ease back into school life in August, as well as give you something to answer back with in case they utter the most dreaded phrase of summer: “I’m bored.”
