This year, we have expanded our collection to include electronic books that students can access from home. Students can create backpacks to keep track of the books they're reading. The best part of electronic books is that you can't misplace the book or damage it. Mackin Via works on tablets, smart phones, laptops, and desktop computers.
At the A.L.A. conference, Greenwood joined We Give Books in order to read more books online. If you want to read 200 different books at home without having to wait until open check out, click on the image below.

At Greenwood Elementary, we use Accelerated Reading, where students can read books that are just right for them. When they complete reading their book, they can take a comprehension quiz to see how much they understand what they are reading. We have an incentive program for students that get points towards their A.R. goals. You can track your A.R. goals from home by clicking here.
Students can take an A.R. test by clicking here.
Our A.R. books have various dot colors that help students find the right book.
AR Party June 15th, 2012
Almost 70 students got their 2nd or above goal in AR this year. Keep reading A.R. books and remember to take an A.R. test at school or from home. Some tablets have an A.R. app now. The top 20 AR users over the summer get a party in September.
We would like to thank the Fort Lewis Thrift Store for all of their support. Through their grants, we have purchased animation technology, musical instruments, and technology to make ebook listening centers. They are located down the street from our school.
