The Verticy Team is always working to create the best learning experience possible. We have some enhancements and activities for Verticy Learning 2012-2013 that we’d like to share with you.
We’ve added Fluency Practice to each level of our Phonics and Spelling program.
Reading fluency is critical to improving independent reading and reading comprehension. Verticy uses guided, repeated oral reading activities to help students improve their reading fluency and comprehension. We’ve even included a tracking sheet so students can see their progress as they move through the program.
My Verticy Portal Upgrade
We know that not every lesson occurs at home. You might want to access your materials while on the go.
If you have a portable computer, Verticy has now made access even easier. Why lug around your lesson manuals, activity pages, and concept pages when you can view every book from your laptop?
As you can see below, we added new materials to the Lesson Manual section of your student’s My Verticy Portal.
You now have access to the Activity, Workbook, and Concept Pages associated with many of your lessons. We hope that this gives you more flexibility and options for using Verticy each day.
In addition to the updates to our program, we wanted to let you know where we are going to be this year.
