Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I use the Online Panda Pages Tracking System?
Here is a step by step PDF instruction packet explaining how it all works DOWNLOAD PACKET.
We don’t have internet access at home, how do we track the reading data?
Unfortunately this is our only way to track reading sheets. Please check with your teacher to see if they may be able to assist you with entering your child’s reading minutes.
When do we turn in the tracking sheets?
Tracking Sheets have been eliminated in order to cut down on paper usage. Please enter the reading data directly into the web-form each month.
I closed my browser window and forgot to click “Submit” at the bottom of the web-form, will my data be saved?
Unfortunately, the web-form will not retain information that is not submitted to the server. Please make sure to click on the “SUBMIT” button at the bottom of the page to send us the data. If you would like to track your child’s minutes you may use our look up site
What happens if my child reads more than 20 lines per month? How many times a month can I enter in data on the web-form?
The reading program tracks in increments of 300 minutes, so you may need to enter the data more than once-a-month. There is no limit to the number of times you can visit the web-form, if you run out of lines or if you’d like to enter your data on a daily or weekly basis, that’s ok.
I can’t remember how many sheets I submitted, is there a way for me to see how many sheets I’ve sent in or how many hours/books my child has already read?
Yes! please visit our look up link
Why do I have to input total minutes read at the bottom of the form? Can’t the form add these from the number of book titles I enter?
Sorry, the form is currently not capable of adding this up. There are a few factors that prevent this (i.e. different reading minutes for different grades), but again, we’re working to see if we can include this in the future.
I’m a new Kinder parent, are we supposed to have our Kinders read 20 minutes by themselves? What if it takes multiple books to get to 20 minutes?
The 20 minutes threshold for the younger children can include parents’ reading time. If it takes multiple books to reach the 20 minutes, just list them all in the web-form. You may enter multiple web forms if necessary.
