myOn Assignment; 20 minutes of Reading every night

We are very fortunate to have a supplemental reading program at Acacia that allows your students to access many books from home.  The myON program also allows us to set students reading at their individual independent reading level (where they read without difficulty). It then bumps the levels up so that our child grows in their reading level and comprehension. This program gathers information about your child’s reading and helps the teacher pinpoint areas of individual improvement. The program also takes the place of the “reading log” as it keeps track of all reading.

This has been my real “Assignment” for the past 19 years and all students have been pretested and trained to do this online program at home.  I am asking that each student read at least 20 minutes a night on our program.  This equals 100 minutes a week! Because we know nights can be busy for families, we have added the entire weekend to the count. This is another reason we searched for something easy that can be done anywhere with a Chromebook. Of course, we know that books in your hands are wonderful and encourage students to read these after their 20 minutes or more. I am such a firm believer in reading outside of the school day. I am also a mom, and have seen the success for my own children as they pursued their careers. As always, please reach out if you have any questions!
