Take Istation Home for the Holidays!

Winter break is just around the corner, and you might be looking for a great way to keep students engaged in learning while they are away from school. Let them take Istation home for the holidays!

Creating a Culture of Reading Both in School and at Home

Cynthia Thro is the proud principal of Oak Grove Elementary in Hillsborough County, Florida. In addition to leading the charge for Istation implementation in her district, Principal Thro has also facilitated a very strong Istation Home program. Recently, I had the opportunity to talk with Principal Thro about how her school has implemented Istation Home with such great success.

Counting on Math: The Core of State Standards

With the new year starting up, I am excited to present to you the latest video in our “Counting on Math” series. These days, the media is full of stories about Common Core Math and the state standards. However, the facts are often skewed, and parents may feel confused or misled when it comes to their child’s math education. In this episode, we will get to the “core” of state math standards and their purpose in order to equip parents with accurate information and resources to support their child.

Bridge the Tech Gap Between School and Home

I grew up in a household with two system engineers. When I began teaching, my childhood comfort with technology followed me into the classroom; I was always thrilled to introduce new hardware or software to my students. Yet for all my tech advocacy and usage, my sons are interacting with technology in ways I couldn’t have imagined even a few short years ago and—on some occasions—in ways I simply can’t understand.

Become a Reading Role Model this Summer

Research shows that children who read fluently do better in school. It's not just teachers who make it happen, though. Parents play a key role, too. As such, it is important for parents to become reading role models for their children. To help get parents started, we've created a guide that outlines five things parents can do to this summer to prepare their children for school in fall. This guide not only shows you how to encourage your child to read but also outlines ways to turn television and games into literacy tools. 

Counting on Math: Nix the Tricks

Counting on Math is back with episode three, “Nix the Tricks”! In this episode, Kelly explores three common tricks and how we can teach these math strategies in a more valuable way. Research shows that using math tricks and formulas in isolation is ineffective in the long-term; without a concrete understanding of why a trick works, students miss critical opportunities for comprehension and skill-building. So join Kelly and nix the tricks! Watch the video to learn how:
