Accelerated Reader is a computer program that helps teachers and librarians manage and monitor children’s independent reading practice. Your child picks a book at his own level and reads it at his own pace. When finished, your child takes a short quiz on the computer. (Passing the quiz is an indication that your child understood what was read.)
According to the First in Math website:
"FIRST IN MATH complements any curriculum, in any learning environment. Studies show that use of the program for minutes a day—in the classroom or at home—can increase math success. The more children use it, the more their skills improve.
There is no software to install, games play on a PC or Mac, and new modules and updates are automatically available. The site offers broad content, with an open-ended, self-pacing design that is great for differentiated instruction.
Implementation is scalable; employ First In Math in one grade or an entire district with equal ease, and no extra load on teachers.
The program includes a “competition” component, which offers sustained, positive motivation. As students play, they earn award “stickers” that accrue to their personal and classroom score."
Middle School Textbooks
Student textbooks for middle school are available online for Literature, Math, Science, and Social Studies. The students should have these sites bookmarked on their Chromebooks.
