Working on iRead at home
Your child can benefit from extra learning and practice time at home, the library, a relative’s home, or anywhere with an Internet connection.
1. Set up a quiet, comfortable work station.
• Provide a mouse, if possible, rather than a track pad.
• Check that the desk or table is at a good height for your child.
• Provide headphones, if possible, to help your child focus better and prevent distractions.
2. Let your child do the work. iRead collects data to help bring your child the instruction and practice he or she needs to master essential skills. If family members or others work in iRead while your child is logged in, the program will not be able to identify your child’s specific needs.
3. Review your child’s iRead backpack screen. Just after login, your child can explore his or her iRead backpack.
• Ask your child to share progress with you, including stars earned in My Letters and My Sounds, books colle cted in My Books, Word Cards, number of Words Read, and more!

Indian Hills Elementary Writing/Communication Plan
Kentucky regulation (Senate Bill 1) requires all public schools to develop school-wide writing/communications programs in which students at all levels and across the curriculum are given multiple opportunities to develop communication skills. Literacy strands in new Kentucky Core Academic Standards include reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use.
Consistent with state regulation, Indian Hills Elementary School strives for all students to be 21st Century communicators by providing multiple opportunities for students to develop complex communication skills for a variety of purposes. Indian Hills defines writing broadly as a purpose filled act of thinking and expressing that uses language to explore and communicate ideas to others. The plan outlines what will be done at Indian Hills Elementary School to prepare students to communnicate well in a variety of situations in their lives. The writing plan is available at your request.
