IMPORTANT!!! REMIND YOUR CHILD TO TAKE AR QUIZZES. WE ONLY HAVE 7 DAYS LEFT OF SCHOOL.
AR QUIZZES: Please, please encourage your child to take AR Quizzes (part of his/her ELA Grade). One grade is for Comprehension and the other grade is what percentage of his/her goal was met. PLEASE, PLEASE encourage your child to take AR quizzes on their own since a new quarter is starting.
YOU CAN ALSO GO TO arbookfinder.com. On this you can type in any book and it will tell you if is an AR book or not.It will also tell you the reading zone of the book. Also, thanks to parents who have shared with me great apps you can download on your phone that will help you find AR books easily. Once you download either of these apps, you simply scan the bar code on the back of any book and it lets you know right away if it is an AR Book or not. How cools is that??? Here are the apps: ar book finder and the other one is point scan free.
i-ready: Let's get those i ready goals done. These students received 5 Franklin Kite Cash for meeting their i-ready goal (which is 45 minutes of Math and 45 minutes of Reading every week.) For those students who have not met their goal, they have till Monday, May 28 by 9 pm). If you are not sure if your child has not met it, send me an email and I will be happy to tell you how many more minutes of each your child needs. (On Friday mornings we have a kite store in the main hallway and students can use their kite cash to buy things).
