Dreambox - Our students use Dreambox to develop mathematical concepts by using virtual manipulatives and critical thinking skills. Dreambox can be used on a computer, laptop or iPad (at school or at home). If you use the app at home you will need an access code (you can get this from your child's teacher).
Bookflix - Bookflix features fiction and non-fiction books that students can read independently or they can choose to have the stories read out loud. The site also features links to puzzles, safe websites on the topic, and a visit to the authors of fiction stories. This site can be accessed at school and at home.
iReady - iReady is the universal screening tool that our complex has chosen to use with all students. In addition to being a screening tool it also is an adaptive instructional tool providing lessons in math and reading for all students. The instructional component is accessible at home and school and works best using the Google Chrome browser on a laptop or desktop computer.
