The City of Gadsden has purchased a subscription for our school system for myON, an online library/reading resource. Each student has a login to use that gives them access to almost 6,000 books. That is simply an incredible resource for our students. There are no extra parent subscriptions required, like other online reading resources that are available. Students will be given suggested titles based off of an interest inventory they will complete on their very first log in. They will also complete, periodically, short assessments that test their reading level. This will adjust the recommended titles to those that are best suited for your reader. There are NO grades attached to this reading… just a resource that allows you to watch your child’s reading progression over a period of time. You can access this via the web or if you have an iPad/tablet, you can use the app. Currently, the app is not available on iPhones.
I hope you are as excited as I am! I can’t wait to share this with our students during class next week. Be ready for them to come home excited about myON and ready to show you how it all works. If at anytime you have questions or need help around the site, please contact me and I will be more than happy to assist.
