myON Reader is a "Literacy Ecosystem that is built upon five pillars: Personalization, Unparalleled Content, Unlimited Access, Collaboration, and Success." Now, our students have 24/7 access to over 13,000 books that they can self-select, annotate, read, and review by interest and Lexile levels.
So what has our experience been? Simple! Our students are reading more than ever! In two months, since beginning our use of myON, our 660 students have read a total of 15, 797 books for an average of 23 books per student. Our students have spent 3,689 hours reading.
Great, right? But, there is more! Our student's Lexile levels show measurable progress. Unsurprisingly, our Kindergarten students have grown 29 Lexile points. But at the other end of the age range, our Eighth-grade students have grown 22 Lexile points as a class. Looking at one student in eighth grade who grew 168 points, we can see that he is closer to grade level reading by having 24/7 access to a personal library.
With all of the reading platforms available, why use myONreader? The excitement, engagement, and the potential results in hooking students on reading. Our students read because our school culture tells them that we support them and #Jaguarsread.
Please share the digital reading platforms that work for you students! I always want to learn more!
