Raz-Kids & Spelling City

Please read the Raz-Kids letter by clicking on the "reading" tab above.  As soon as I finish up reading assessments I will have each student's reading level updated (some have been updated already).  If you have an iPad, you can download the free Raz-Kids app!  You'll just need to type in my username: kwoodaap.  Then click on your name and type in your password to get started.  I will send home your password next week if you've forgotten it from last year.  The great thing about the iPad version is that students can switch back and forth between the quiz and the text if they need to go back and reread a part to answer a quiz question (students are taught to go back to the text to find the answer).  The website version does not allow students to do that.

Last week in computer lab your child visited the website Spelling City.  This site is a great place for students to practice his/her spelling words.  They can choose to play a game or take a quiz to help them prepare for their spelling test.  To get started your child can either type in his/her spelling words or he/she can search for Miss Pronovich...she types all of the spelling words in for the students ; -)

You can easily get to both Raz-Kids and Spelling City by clicking on the website name on the right hand side of the blog.
