How I Use It
I use Raz-Kids to have my students practice reading on their guided reading level and on their comprehension. I found that once you get past a certain level, the guided reading levels don't match the Fontas and Pinnell leveling system. I had to go online to find the correlation so that I had students reading the correct levels.
My Take
Raz-Kids is a good tool to use to have students practice fluency and comprehension. It provides a selection of fiction and informational texts that the students can choose from. Students can also access this program from home. Once the students start reaching levels K and above, if you use the Fontas and Pinnell leveling system, they do not match up, so you need to find the correlation to keep your kids on track.
