How I Use It
I provide my students with 2 to 3 class periods of 30 minutes each week to go to the lab to work on RAZ kids. Since many of my students do not have reliable technology at home, I have to provide most of the time at school. I am able to track their learning and conference individually with students based upon their reading.
My Take
This program is great to provide students with individualized and highly engaging reading work. They have a chance to earn "stars" with which they can "purchase" items! The harder the work, the more stars they earn. I am able to go into the program and customize the level at which each student is reading. I can also see the amount of time spent on the program both at home and at school.
