PAWS in Typing Town - Paws and his friends introduce our students to the world of typing. With their help our students learn proper posture, hand position, and typing skills.
SRI - Scholastic Reading Inventory. This program functions as a quick "reading physical" at all stages of a student's academic career. We use SRI to pretest at the beginning of the school year, and test again at intervals throughout the year to measure reading growth and determine needs.
Reading Counts! - A program that manages and motivates independent reading. Quiz selection is based on Scholastic titles. There are currently 16,864 titles to choose from, district wide.
Read180-is an intensive reading intervention program that helps educators to confront the problem of adolescent illiteracy on multiple fronts, using technology, print, and professional development. READ 180 is proven to meet the needs of students whose reading achievement is below proficient level. The program directly addresses individual needs through adaptive and instructional software, high-interest literature, and direct instruction in reading, writing, and vocabulary skills.
Inspiration -This program uses the power of visual learning. It helps strengthen critical thinking, comprehension and writing skills. The integrated diagramming and outlining views work together to help students comprehend concepts and information.
Kidspiration - Provides an easy way to apply the principles of visual learning. Our young readers and writers use this program to combine pictures, text and spoken words to represent their ideas and show relationships.
