New Digital Homework: Reading Eggs!

We have a new addition to our digital homework: Reading Eggs!  Students received a login sheet today -- but their usernames and passwords are the same ones used for Study Island (Username: Student ID #, Password: First Name).  We have a trial period to use the site and it is a fun, engaging resource to help students strengthen their reading skills.  When your child logs in, they will be asked to complete a 40 question diagnostic test.  If your child gets all the questions right, please have them go to the ReadingEggspress website.  ReadingEggspress is for students who are on grade level or above.   There students can read online books and answer comprehension questions.  At both sites, students earn "eggs" that they can use to play games, buy items for their avatars or virtual apartments, and more.  It seems the trial period will end on May 15th, so please have your child login soon and try it out!
