In a school with full membership to Reading A-Z and RazKids
Looking around the site I feel like I'm always about to click on a link that might interest me, only to find out I need another membership, i.e., A-Z Vocabulary. Reading A-Z has a lot of books, but I do question the quality of some of the materials I found on the site. Just because it's print and it's at a student's level doesn't mean it's worth giving to my student or class. This is obvious, but I do wonder how much better off schools are with high-quality library access, rather than pricey online platforms.

Reading A-Z: A Quick and Easy Way to Ensure that all Students are Reading at their Own Level
All in all, this product does save so much time because everything is ready to go for the teacher, including detailed lesson plans and worksheets that target important skills. It is a wonderful resource, especially since I teach more than one subject and find myself with limited time for finding and modifying resources for students. The drawbacks to this program lie in the limited availability of texts. Many of my students read far below grade level, so the subject areas available are more suitable for a much younger audience than my students.
