Students in Grades 1-3 of our Lower School will now be using brand new Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Edition tablets at school thanks to a generous donor.
Introduced in the classrooms this week, teachers are helping students navigate several online learning platforms, including Seesaw, Xtra Math, and A-Z Reading. Activities on these devices supplement concepts they are currently studying with extra practice and application. For instance, students are able to read and listen to books at their appropriate reading levels to help with reading fluency and comprehension.
Students’ familiarity with these programs will be very helpful should we be required to transition to remote learning in the future. Ask your child to describe his or her experience with the tablets so far!
