The tips on the website are designed to help teachers integrate Raz-Kids into the classroom.
The Raz-Kids website offers a variety of helpful tips. The tips range from information about sister sites, to how to get students more involved with reading, to improving their vocabulary. The tips below are just a few of those found on the Raz-Kids website.
- Book variety
- Use the black button
- Ready to move on
- Use assignment reports
- Use at home
The Raz-Kids website offers books on a variety of topics, not just on the one being taught in the classroom, such as books on animals, sports, weather and transportation.
The black button allows students to replay the pages of a book.
After students have read all the books on their level, they can read a benchmark passage book to determine if they are truly ready to move on to the next level.
Assignment reports offer a quick glance at the student's progress.
Raz-Kids can be used at home to keep students on track with their progress. Only the teacher's username and the student's own password is needed to access the site.
