We are very excited to introduce to our Team 120 families, our new reading program. Fast For Word is a web-based reading program that will keep your child engaged and learning. Fast For Word is a research based reading program that boast generous gains in reading for participants.
Maximum effectiveness is achieved by following a few simple rules for participation.
* Please have your child logon and work for a minimum of 30 minutes a night five times a week. (150 minutes per week) Exceeding 30 min. a night and 150 minutes a week is fine. However, your child needs to accomplish this in five sessions per week.
* Success can only be attained if you follow the previous direction accurately.
The following example is the wrong way to implement the program.
Ex. Your child misses one or two nights of reading, then, works for 60 - 90 minutes the next two nights to make up the time. They achieve the 150 minutes but do it in three to four nights instead of five. This will not produce the gains in reading that the program has shown through research analysis.
We know our awesome student will do exceptionally well. They should enjoy hours of fun filled reading excitement.
