How I Use It
This is a subscription our school has that goes along with Reading A-Z. Once you have the subscription, you will need to go in and set up your class...doesn't take long. Teachers can set specific reading levels. Students really love this and ask to use it all the time...even my most struggling readers. The books are leveled and include both fiction and non-fiction. There are different options for students to choose from. They can listen to the book, read it on their own, and even record themselves reading it aloud. They earn stars for completing books which they can use for purchasing items on RAZ kids.
My Take
Great motivation for readers of all levels. This is a great way for students to get independent practice and answer questions based on the book. The questions are pretty basic (lower level of Blooms), but still a good indicator if students are comprehending text. The books are short so students can complete a book in one sitting. The other wonderful thing about RAZ Kids is they can access it from home..
