Home Learning Update May 2020

Dear Colleague,

We hope you found our last information email helpful to start or to continue using Reading Plus at home, especially for those children that may not return in June.

We have added this information as a blog post on our website for you to go back to here.

In our latest email, we’d like to share some hints and tips for maximising uptake and engagement by recognising small gains that are made while home learning.

Some of our schools have fed back that they are finding the in-app messaging function within Reading Plus to be valuable at this time.

You can receive and send messages to individual pupils or send a full class communication

as long as the function is unlocked and the member staff is assigned to the class (see Messaging Pupils).

  

Kids love Combos

Combos are the key to unlocking new levels in the Reading Plus. To earn a Combo, pupils will need to complete two Reading Lessons in a row at 80%+ comprehension score.  The key to earning Combos is using ReReads.

Please see Teacher Tip 2 https://readingsolutionsuk.co.uk/resource/six-top-tips-for-terrific-results/

 The Assignments Panel (page2) provides an effective way for you to check pupils completed work including Combos earned and average comprehension score on a daily or weekly basis.

 

 

Using the Class Leaderboard Report you can filter reading activity to view:

  • reading lessons completed
  • words read
  • comprehension average
  • rate gain (wpm)
  • level gain

 Remember to check for Alerts to see if any pupils need your attention and support and are not prevented from reading.

Use this handy guide for more information on understanding alerts.
