I sent this notice via email to every parent whose email address I have. Please mention it to other parents if you happen to be speaking to them.
Over the years, I have used RALLY test prep materials because they are one of the best out there, in my opinion. Once in awhile, they offer free access online.
Today, I got an email from RALLY offering free vacation access to their online reading comprehension program. This access is free until January 6th.
I have had this access a few times in the past and the children have really profited from using it.
This is the link you go to for access. http://www.
You have to enter info about the school name, state and zipcode, but no personal info.
Then you get entry to Level D which is 4th grade.
That will take you to a page where you can get instruction and practice on the following skills.
|1.||Recall Facts and Details|
|2.||Identify Main Ideas|
|4.||Analyze Language and Vocabulary|
|5.||Analyze Character, Plot, and Setting|
|6.||Recognize Cause and Effect|
|7.||Compare and Contrast|
|8.||Distinguish Fact from Opinion|
|12.||Analyze Point of View and Purpose|
|13.||Identify Literary Forms and Sources of Information|
|14.||Apply Prior Knowledge|
Please don't hesitate to email if you have any questions.
Thank you all for your help and generosity and cooperation these past few months. I am so grateful for all of you. I wish you and your families a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year ahead.
Note: vacation homework is in the post below this.
