I am very excited to share an online, interactive reading program with you called Raz Kids. I would like to extend a special thanks to the GNPS Parent Council as I was able to use their generous donation for each classroom to purchase additional literacy resources towards the cost of this subscription:}
Your child has a log in page taped inside their agenda with their personal information and log in instructions. With this program students have an opportunity to listen to a story read to them. Then they should attempt to read the story independently. When finished there is a quiz they can try. There is also an additional incentive program called the Raz Rocket Room where students can use accumulated points from reading to decorate their virtual rooms.
Students are welcome to use this program in conjunction with our Take Home Reading program and can record these titles in their duotangs as well. Please let me know if you should have any problems with this program so that I may report them promptly to the website administrator.
It is my hope that this program will further promote your child's interest and enthusiasm in reading.
