    HOW CAN OUR STUDENTS

    AVOID SUMMER

    LEARNING LOSS?

     

    reading

    This summer the Providence School Department has teamed up with the Providence Public Library for summer reading. Grade 6 and 7 students were given PVD TEEN READ cards to track summer reading. The cards have 40 bubbles on them. Each one should be circled when 30 minutes of independent reading has been done during the summer. In order for cards to be valid, a student must log into their PVD Teen Read accounts.

     

    Phone App:

    Download ReadSquared app on phone

    When it opens it will ask you to find your school or library

    Type in Providence Community Library, RI (there are other Providence libraries in other states, so if this is wrong it won't work)

    DON'T REGISTER

    DO LOG IN

    Username:  firstlast (First and last name with no space) (Many students have multiple last names.  They have to use the first and last names listed in Skyward.  Some kids have more than one last name but don't realize it)

    Password: Monthdayyear (Month has to be spelled out.  EX:  January052005)

    Voila - You're in

    COMO PUEDEN LOS ESTUDIANTES EVITAR LA PERDIDA DE APRENDIZAJE EN VERANO?

    Este verano, el Departamento Escolar de Providence se ha asociado con las Bibliotecas Publicas de Providence para la lectura durante el verano.  Los estudiantes de los grados 6 y 7 recibieron tarjetas PVD TEEN READ para realizar un seguimiento de las lecturas de verano.  Las tarjetas tienen 40 burbujas en ellas.  Cada una de ella debe ser marcada  con un circulo cuando se hayan completado 30 minutos de lectura independiente durante el verano.  Para que las tarjetas sean validas, los estudiantes deben iniciar una session en sus cuentas PVD TEEN READ.

     

    En el telefono:

    Descarga la aplicacion ReadSquared en tu telefono.

    Cuando se abra la aplicacion te pedira que encuentres tu escuela o biblioteca.

    Escribe: Providence Community Library, RI (Hay otras bibliotecas con este nombre en otros estados, por eso es importante escribir el nombre completo para que funcione)
