I went home to Jersey for a little over two weeks to enjoy the holiday with family and friends.
I always enjoy my time home, but especially the time I get with my nieces!
(my oldest niece and I LOVE our trips to Starbucks for hot chocolate & cookies)
While home, I realized just how painful The Witching Hour really is!
My nieces would whine, cry, and run around. I remember my sister looking at me and with exasperation in her voice, she simply said, “I just don’t want to be a mom right now.” (she was kidding, of course ;))
You may be able to beat it with myON (and it’s FREE)!
Some of you may have already heard of myON. If not, let me explain.
myON reader provides anytime, anywhere access to an expanding online collection of digital books with multimedia supports, including an embedded dictionary, text highlighting, and audio to ALL children from birth through grade 8 in Hillsborough County.
myON reader gives students the opportunity to choose what they want to read, in a digital environment where they are comfortable.
myON reader personalizes the reading experience and develops an individual profile for each student based on interests and reading ability as measured by the Lexile® Framework for Reading.
myON reader generates a recommended booklist tailored to encourage students to read more and further improve their reading skills
There is nothing to buy, it’s not confusing. Just click HERE to register!
So hand over your tablet, ipad or phone, and let them listen to a story (or two, or three...).
All they need to do is use myON one time and they’ll get it (seriously, these kids are so technologically advanced)!
Here’s to hoping myON helps during that *CrAZy* time of the day ;)
