The time reading does not have to be all at once, it can be divided up with some after school, some after dinner, and the rest before bedtime.

 

When I suggest that your child read with an adult, this could include older children who are reading at a higher level.

 

iRead can be accessed on a computer by going to the NWES Student’s page. The login is their lunch number and the password is 123456

First Week

We made it! We had an exciting first week of school. I received a class set of iPads, and we have started to learn how to use them along with new types of software. For students who do not have internet at home I am working on programs that can be used offline.

I do want to remind everyone that the kiddos are required to do homework 7 nights a week. There will be times that they cannot do the homework because of family or sports commitments. When this happens they need to make up the math or reading the next night,

I hope everyone enjoyed learning this week as much as me. If you have any questions or concerns please email, “Remind” text, or call me.
