Attention parents! IDEA Public Schools will be closed for Spring Break from March 12 through March 16. This week is a great opportunity for your scholar to soak up the sun and catch up on some reading. Once your child finishes a book, remind him or her to test on it online via the Accelerated Reader software!
Just in case you need a little help figuring out what books your scholar should read, here are our picks for this break!
LOWER ACADEMY (Grades K-2)
Miss Nelson Is Missing!
By Harry Allard
“Miss Nelson has the worst-behaved class in school. Then, Miss Swamp turns up to straighten things out. Who is Miss Swamp? That's the mystery.”
UPPER ACADEMY (Grades 3-5)
By Andrew Clements
“When Nick Allen decides to turn his fifth-grade teacher's love of the dictionary around on her, he cleverly invents a new word and begins a chain of events that quickly moves beyond his control.”
MIDDLE SCHOOL (Grades 6-8)
I Am Malala: Young Readers Edition
By Malala Yousafzai
“I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls' education, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.”
All students are encouraged to spend time reading books at their “just right” level, taking AR quizzes, and logging into their iLearning Hotspot software to practice math skills over the break. Don’t forget to maintain your accuracy in the software!
