Third grade students at Firelands Elementary are embarking on a myON adventure, thanks to a grant awarded from the Ohio Literacy Innovation. MyON offers unlimited access to thousands of digital books. Through the integration of this program, several 3rd grade students are completing Landform projects. With the collection of high-interest books, the students are not only comparing and contrasting different landforms such as; deltas, mountains, valleys, and islands, but they are also writing online essays incorporating the information learned from the vast collection of high-interest, leveled books. The students have expressed an overwhelming desire to read books and complete future projects. Through the utilization of myON, teachers have the ability to easily monitor the students’ online presence and easily adapt assignments on an as needed basis. Projects can be modified to meet the needs of all online users. Be sure to ask your child about their myON experience.
