Hope in Transit: Istation in Rural Nicaragua | Part One

 

What do you want to be when you grow up? It’s a question parents and educators ask children in the United States quite often. It primes and ignites a child’s imagination, conjuring up crayon drawings of police officers, engineers, firefighters, doctors, teachers, and astronauts. It is this question that leads a child’s curiosity into discovery. It’s a question we ask to help inspire and encourage. We pat them on the back, smile, and tell them they can be whatever they want to be . . . if they try hard enough, never give up, and get good grades in school. A child’s world in the United States seems endless, full of choices, like a store full of shiny new toys waiting to be picked.

We've Got the Guide to "Stopping the Summer Slide"

Throughout the summer, we've been sharing tips, tricks, and tools to help parents, community centers, and summer schools maintain literacy and stop the summer slide. Now, we're pleased to announce the publication of our "Stopping the Summer Slide" eBook! 

Take Five This Summer

Research proves summer learning loss happens, but there is also research to prove it can be prevented. With just five books, students can mantain and improve their literacy skills. 

Istation Selected by New Mexico Public Education Department for K–3

We're so excited! Istation has been awarded a statewide contract with the New Mexico Public Education Department. Both our English and Spanish formative assessments — known as ISIP™ — will be made available at no cost to New Mexico districts and charter-school students in kindergarten through third grade! 

Istation Success Story: “I am hooked on Istation Home!”

Istation Home usage leads to big gains and stronger school-to-home connections

Denise R. is a kindergarten teacher with an appreciation for Istation Home. She was so impressed with the impact it had on her class that she shared her story with us. Keep reading to see why we had to share it with you!

Go Places with Reading

Did you know children who read over the summer are less likely to lose the vital reading skills learned during the school year? It's true! Encouraging your child to read is not only important, but also a great way to have fun and bond! This summer, why not take a reading road trip? You can really go places with reading! 

Make Sure Summertime is Family Time

Start spending time together to stop summer learning loss!
