Google Read & Write Updates

November 30, 2015

 

 

Last year we started our venture into the world of Chromebooks with a focus on the Google Read & Write program. We saw Google Read & Write as an accessible program that could potentially help our students with their academic success. We are still utilizing the program this year in our classrooms and having your student use it at home as well will truly aid them in their learning process.

 

Here are some links to explore this wonderful program further:
