  i-Ready

What is i-Ready?

i-Ready is an online program that will help us determine your child's strengths and areas for growth, personalize their learning, and monitor their progress throughout the school year.  i-Ready allows us to meet your child where they are and provides us with data to inform instruction.

i-Ready Instruction provides students with lessons based on their individual strengths and areas for growth.  These lessons are interactive and provide strategic supports to keep your child engaged as they learn.

What can you do to help?

To support your child's learning in Online Instruction, you can:

  • Discuss your child's progress on their i-Ready lessons.
  • Celebrate your child's learning and growth.
  • Encourage them to use i-Ready at home.
    • They will need access to a computer or iPad, internet, and their login information.  To check if your system meets i-Ready system requirements, please click here to run a system check.

Coding for Kids

It’s easy to imagine a kid learning coding being stuck in front of a computer for the rest of their lives. However, that doesn’t have to be the case! In fact, coding experience can open up many opportunities and make your child more marketable when they start applying for awards, scholarships, and even jobs! There are plenty of paid coding appswebsites, and books for kids to learn to code. In the digital age, there are even more ways to learn coding for kids, free. 

 

Coding also allows your kid to creatively express him or herself. Your child has an idea for a game? They should make it! Your child has an idea for a website? They should design it! The possibilities are endless when it comes to coding and there are FREE appswebsites, and activities available to kids of all ages.
