Earn up to 10 BONUS POINTS during Quarter 1!!
During Quarter 1 (following the first iReady reading diagnostic), students are encouraged to earn up to FIVE EXTRA-CREDIT POINTS for TWO DIFFERENT WEEKS (for a total of 10 pts. during Q1), by logging onto their iReady accounts and completing the reading assignments. Parents/Students can keep track of any earned points by checking on Parent Portal; earned points will be posted weekly. *PLEASE KNOW: Receving a zero for a week of iReady will NOT affect a student's average....averages will only be enhanced by earning the points! Do NOT panic, if a zero is on the grade sheet under the iReady slot!*
Each week, students may log onto iReady (instructions are below), and complete up to 30-minutes of reading exercises. At the end of the week, a system report will tell me how much time each student has spent on the lessons.Username: Capital 1st initial ID Number Capital last initial

Bonus points for this work will be based on the amount of weekly time spent on the program:
o 29-30 minutes: 5 bonus points
o 26-28 minutes: 4 bonus points
o 23-25 minutes: 3 bonus points
o 19-22 minutes: 2 bonus points
o 15-18 minutes: 1 bonus point
**During the week of our diagnostic iReady testing, the bonus opportunity will be suspended until the conclusion of the testing.**
NOTE: Some lessons may only take a few minutes, while others can take an hour. Work may be stopped in the middle of a lesson and returned to later. However, the system will “flag” students if they log on and simply let the system run, without doing any work. Additionally, be aware: i-Ready will automatically track the time that you've spent on the lessons... not games or quizzes.
The iReady computer program is an excellent method for reviewing and improving reading skills. These skills will help reading comprehension in EVERY subject.
