Accelerated Reader & iLearning Hotspot: The Perfect Winter Break Activity

IDEA Public Schools wants to encourage families and students to utilize Accelerated Reader (AR) and Hotspot software during winter break.  Both programs will be available for students to use at home from December 22- January 8.  While relaxing and spending time with loved ones over the holidays, IDEA wants to ensure students and families have the tools to dedicate time to reading books at their “just right” level, taking AR quizzes, and logging into their HotSpot software to keep their math skills sharp!  

Daritza Naranjo, a 2nd grader at IDEA Quest Academy, is looking forward to boosting her reading and math skills over break.  Daritza recently became a word master, meaning she has already read 500,000 words. She hopes to continue to make progress towards becoming a millionaire reader during winter break, and her mom is excited to support her in this goal. 

 “During some downtime, Daritza will curl up, read a book, and then test her knowledge using IDEA’s AR program online,” said Diana Naranjo, Daritza’s mother.  “We’re very grateful IDEA has kept the math and reading programs open during the holidays so that students can continue to have fun learning at home.  It’s very helpful as a parent and nice to know Daritza will stay sharp and be ready to learn when classes resume in January.”      

Principals at IDEA campuses are also implementing fun challenges and incentives to encourage students to spend time reading and practicing math during winter break.  Be sure to check with your campus for specific details on winter break challenges and prizes, and don’t forget to maintain your accuracy in the software. 

On behalf of IDEA Public Schools, have a relaxing and safe holiday full of reading and math fun!  We will see you back on January 9, 2017.
