2020-2021 Family Engagement- i-Ready Information:
With limitations on visitors to our building, and various restrictions placed upon us, we have had to be creative with our required Title I Family Engagement events. Our first “event” is this email with links to videos and attachments for you to gain information about the i-Ready program that Riverbend has in place this year. Our second “event” is called Rise and Shine and is scheduled for May 27. It will be a drive-thru packet pick-up event.
We are excited to share that Riverbend has implemented a Mathematics and Reading program called i-Ready. Below, you will find information about the program and how we will be using it in the classroom.
What is i-Ready?
i-Ready is an online program that will help us determine your child’s strengths and areas for growth, personalize their learning, and monitor their progress throughout the school year. i-Ready allows us to meet your child where they are and provides us with data to inform instruction.
The i-Ready Diagnostic is an adaptive assessment that adjusts its questions to suit your child’s needs. Each item a student receives is based on their answer to the previous question. For example, a series of correct answers will result in slightly harder questions, while a series of incorrect answers will yield slightly easier ones. The purpose of this is not to give your child a score or grade but to determine how to best support their learning.
i-Ready Instruction provides students with lessons based on their individual strengths and areas for growth. These lessons are interactive and provide strategic supports to keep your child engaged as they learn.
To support your child’s learning in online instruction, you can:
- Discuss your child’s progress on their i-Readylessons.
- Celebrate your child’s learning and growth.
- Encourage them to use i-Readyat home.
Thank you for your continued support and for being a partner in your child’s learning! We look forward to sharing i-Ready information with you throughout the year. If you have any questions about i-Ready, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the school. You can also learn more about i-Ready by visiting:
