New Albany, MS- New Albany Elementary School will introduce students and their families to the Ticket to Read program during the 2016-2017 school year.
Ticket to Read is an interactive, Web-based, student-centered learning component that promotes the practice of text reading. The program enables students to build fluency, strengthen vocabulary, and reinforce comprehension skills as they navigate a self-paced instructional path. Motivational features provide students with incentives to practice. An embedded reward system is included in this program. Students also receive constant feedback to monitor their performance, and reports are available to teachers.
Ticket to Read Phonics has 14 different instructional Phonics Paths and the reading component has 16 Reading Levels. Students are assigned a Level or Path based on their Online Phonics Placement Assessment. Ticket to Read can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection at school, at home, at the library, or in any after-school setting.
Students and parents will receive more information about this program, including login information, during the first month of school.
The Ticket to Read program during the 2016-2017 school year is being made possible in part from a $2500 grant provided by Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Mississippi.
“We are excited to be a recipient of the Toyota Mississippi grant and to be able to provide this new reading initiative at NAES for the upcoming school year,” said Jamey Wright, Principal.
