You are starting a new school year, and many of you will be starting new students in the Stevenson Program. Some of you will be using the program for the first time. Do not forget to make use of the free animated online student activity on our web site. It is called “The oa Friends in Action,” and you can access it from the bottom center of the home page at www.StevensonLearning.com. Students in the Beginning Green Level can use Section 1 of the online activity after completing Lesson One.They can use the remaining online sections after completing Lesson Six. Students in the Overlapping Strategy books can try out all the online sections while they cover Lessons One and Two. Take advantage of this free resource! The kids will have fun and the oa vowel pattern will become embedded in their memories with very little work on your part.
