Welcome to Raz Kids. This website provides students with hundreds of e-books. Students can read and listen to books on Raz-Kids and can record there progress themselves. After they are done reading a story, they take a quiz on comprehension
I chose the book changes. The book is read to the student and the words are highlighted in red as they are said. This helps students follow along. If students need help while reading on their own, students can click on the Word and it will be said to them.
After the story has been read by the student. They can go to any page they want, have it read to them again, take a quiz, or go to the home page.
If parents want to see the progress of their students and how they are doing on their quizzes. This provides an account theycan set-up to access this information.
I love that my son can go and pick out books that are at his level. This site is wonderful because there are a variety of fiction and non-fiction books. The quizzes help the students learn how to pay attention to details in the story in order to get those questions right.
Raz-Kids could be used across the curriculum. There are lots of different books that cover all kinds of subjects.
Students really like this online reading program and like the rewards they get from it.
They are able to see their progress too.
