All students in 2nd through 5th grade have received instruction over the past 2 weeks on a terrific piece of software we use at school called Read & Write Gold. This is a piece of software that allows students to improve their assignments through tools such as graphic organizers, text read aloud, auto-suggest for words, data collection from websites and a whole host of other features that help with reading, writing, study skills and research. A video of its many features can be found here
As a special offer to LCPS students, the makers of Read & Write Gold have allowed students to install this valuable software on their home computers. If you wish to take advantage of this offer, click herefor a form to complete and return to school. You will need to decide which is the best version for you to install. Next, print out page 2 of the document, fill in the name of the student and the name of the teacher, check the box next to the version you require, and send it in to school with an empty Flashdrive (at least 4MB) The required files will then be copied on to the flashdrive for your child to bring home.
