 Practice at Home- i Ready

I Ready is a wonderful resource that your child may use at home. Students took an  i ready reading and math test at the beginning of the year. This test generated computer activities which are designed to meet your child’s individual needs according to their test results. The program can be accessed at home and I encourage students to use it daily. Students should only spend about 15 minutes each day working on the program. They may choose math or reading. To access the site, simply go the school website, click on students, drop down and click on clever. The students are very familiar with this procedure and their passwords are in the front of the agenda. Please let me know if you have any questions or problems. Thanks again for all of your help.
