iRead is a great reading program that feels more like a game for your child. When your child first started iRead at school they took a placement assessment and therefore are learning information that is RIGHT at their level. The kids have their very own character and virtual backpack where they earn badges and other incentives while they play. When your child logs in, it will show them what level they are at on the iRead pathway (in the top right corner). The levels are as follows:
Topics 1-18 (Level A) teach and review kindergarten concepts
Topics 19 - 36 (Level B) teach and review 1st grade concepts
Topics 36 - 51 teach and review 2nd grade concepts
We would love if the kids could spend 15-20 minutes on iRead at home each day! iRead works on a computer or laptop as well as an iPad or tablet as long as it has Adobe Flash Player. Unfortunately, iRead will not work on a cell phone. Please let your child's teacher know if you have any trouble logging in.
