Links for Kids
There are so many great websites and resources out there that kids can access throughout the school year. Here are just a few that we’ve found and like. If you have any others that you think should be added to the list, contact us.
Your child can log into his/her Jiji Math account and complete any assigned homework added by your child’s teacher.
Your student will also have to enter the name of their school. ST Math will accept many variations of our school’s name. For example, Jiji Math will accept lots of different entries including “Roosevelt School”, “Roosevelt Elementary”. Have your student click on the homework button and enter their 13-character picture password.
Kindergarten students who are still using 8 character passwords will not be able to access ST Math@Home until they learn their full password.
Attention parents of students in grades 2 -8: you can now view you child’s Accelerated Reader progress online! Renaissance Home Connect is a tool that allows parents to log in to a Web site and view a snapshot of their child’s Accelerated Reader progress. That progress includes average percent correct on quizzes, number of points earned, and results on the last quiz. In addition, parents can view all the Accelerated Reader quizzes their child has taken, and can access an online search tool, AR Book Finder, to search for books using various criteria, including author, subject, or reading level. To receive an email when your child has completed an Accelerated Reader Quiz, click the Email Setup link and enter your child’s name and up to six email addresses to receive updates.
To log on, go to https://Hosted122.renlearn.com/278977/HomeConnect That will open up a page requesting your child’s User Name and Password. Letters went home to parents with this information, but if you don’t have it, have your child enter the information. Once you are in the system, you will be able to see the books your child has read and what their progress is towards their point goal. Please note: This site currently doesn’t work on all browsers, but it does work on Safari.
