Send Istation Home for the Holidays

by Cecilia Chard on December 18, 2014

Benefits of Istation Home usage

Istation Home is an excellent way to strengthen the school-home connection and expand learning beyond the classroom.  Not only does it extend a student’s education beyond the school day, but it also helps get parents involved in their children’s education!

With the new Assignments feature, you can assign interactive lessons for your students to work on at home for extra practice.

This is a great way to keep students’ brains working over the holiday break. Teachers can either assign lessons for students to complete or allow students to work at their own pace in the Istation Reading and/or Writing program. Below is a sample holiday schedule teachers can give to their students:
