Have a great summer…and keep on learning with READING and MOBYMAX!
If you are looking for something to do over spring break, I have an idea for at least 120 minutes of your time off: Learning! All students who spends 120 MINUTES or MORE engaged in reading or online learning images(120 total minutes over all the days of break), will be entered into a drawing for a $25 AMAZON GIFT CARD.
Online Options: MOBYMAX (ALL GRADES), STUDY ISLAND (Gr 3-5), RAZ KIDS (Gr PK-2), MATHFACTSPRO (Gr 1-5).
Reading Options: Listen to an audio book or a REAL PERSON READ or JUST READ on your own.
Did you know that listening to a story stimulates children’s imaginations and emotions, exposes children to rich language patterns, new vocabulary words and a variety of texts? If you need ideas for great family friendly audio books, check the GEEKMOM / GEEKDAD Blog. This is a great idea if your child struggles to stay focused reading or if you are in the car traveling.
If you read or listen to a book, enter your total minutes here.
Enjoy some extra time with your child!
It’s time for another online learning contest. Monday is a day off for students. If you are looking for something to do, go to one of our online learning sites and earn minutes to enter a drawing for gift cards.
All students (Pk-5) who spend 30 minutes online learning will be entered into a dra30 minwing for a $10 BOOK FAIR GIFT CARD. One winner for each grade will receive a gift card. You may spend the money as you choose at the Book Fair. If you spend 60 minutes online, your name will be entered twice. This doubles your chances of earning a gift card.
ll students (PK-5) who spend 60 minutes or more online learning will be entered into a drawing for a $25 AMAZON GIFT CARD. Remember…the minutes can be earned across all the different learning sites. So time spent learning – even if it is on more than one online site, adds up!
