Start reading at home
Students can enroll in a web-based reading program the first Monday of each month throughout the academic school year ( September-June).
Once you have a start date, here are the next steps:
- The Welcome Letter. Miss Joy will send a welcome letter introducing you to the web-based reading program including a quick start guide on how to use the platform. Additional information will be provided to confirm your goals and to answer your questions .
- Reading Assessment . Most students start with an online reading assessment which includes a running record to place students in an appropriate reading level in the program. Parents also discuss their child’s learning needs and expectations, so we can be sure to know how best to meet you and your child’s learning goals.
- Individualized Reading Plan. Using these inputs, we develop a reading plan and discuss how we assess progress for both monitored and self-paced reading programs.
- The Weekly Routine for Web-based Reading Programs. Students spend a minimum of 10-20 minutes three days a week completing their reading exercises/book selections. Your child will be signed up for either a monitored or self-paced reading program. All programs include remote support and regular check-ins by email.
