Leveling the Playing Field for all Students

Help me give my students the access to books anywhere and anytime. Raz Kids allows the students to login via any device (computer, tablet, phone) and read books that are specifically leveled to their reading ability.

My Students

"Like stars are to the sky, so are the children to our world. They deserve to shine!"

"If you make the world better for KIDS, you make the world better for EVERYONE."

We are an urban group, with many diverse backgrounds, languages, and learning styles. My students struggled for access to the same things that other students took for granted before the pandemic, now it is an even greater struggle with everything being virtual. I am trying to even the playing field. My students are diverse learners, and need the extra practice in reading.

My Project

My students struggle for access to the same things that other students took for granted before the pandemic, now it is an even greater struggle with virtual learning. These online books allow my students to read anywhere, anytime, and at their ability level.

Reading is the #1 factor in determining a child's future job and socioeconomic status.

I am simply trying to even the playing field for my students, and allow them the same opportunities that other children receive. This helps the parents as well, because they don't have to leave their home to go get books, they have immediate access! My own children use this program at their school and they have grown so much by using it.
