ReadyGen: Elementary Literacy

I Teach Because...

Think back to when you were a student, back-to-school shopping, finding your classroom, and the exciting lessons that would soon fill your day. The first day of school jitters that were calmed by the friendly, welcoming face, and celebrating the “ah ha” moments when you finally figured out how to solve the problem. Then there was the time in kindergarten, when you went to the restroom but couldn’t remember the way back to your classroom. As panic set in, that friendly face walked around the corner and they knew exactly where your classroom was.

MES Spotlight School on myON

 Building a Sustainable and Growing Literacy Program    By Betsy Ball  

"As various school breaks approach throughout the year,
Principal Betsy Ball’s consistent message to Mead Elementary
families is to keep their children reading with myON. “We have
a schoolwide focus on literacy and myON fits beautifully to
support home-school engagement,” she explained. “This is our
fourth year with myON, and it is now part of our school culture.
We are myON readers! "
