I teach first grade at a Title 1 school. More than 70% of the students on our campus receives free or reduced price breakfast and lunch. At home many of my students do not have access to any books or the ability to go to the local library.
My students amaze me each day with how passionate and eager they are to read.
A typical day in our first grade classroom is a jam packed day full of station rotations and individualized learning. Most of the times the only books they read all day would solely be in the classroom or in the school library. Reading A-Z and Raz-kids will allow my students to practice reading and comprehension both at school and home.
We are in need of this online reading program inorder to help my students read on their correct reading level.
Leveled books for guided and independent reading are ever-important for reading instruction, and finding books on a variety of levels that are intriguing to students without breaking the bank can be a difficult task. Reading A-Z and Raz-Kids are online resources that would give our class access to a wide variety of leveled books, in both online and printable versions. These subscriptions come with activities and resources like quizzes and built-in motivational rewards.
My students need access to books that are just-right for them to read independently, and with over 2,000 books on Raz-Kids and Reading A-Z, all of my students are guaranteed to find something that interests them.
Students can read e-books on their level during centers or when they have time to read. Offering my students leveled books means they will not be at frustration level, nor will the books be too easy for them. These subscriptions also give me the ability to teach reading groups on instructional levels, with everything I need for engaging lessons already included.
