What Worked
My students are excited to read books!

Most students are reading books at home.

My ELL students are hearing books in English.

I started off with this being more for at home use.


Now I am using it about twice a week during centers.

I dont use passwords so the students can easily log off


And the next student is ready to go!

I am collecting data now to see if Raz-Kids increases my


Students reading levels.

Eliminates having a Listening Center


Issues
I might have started using it before the students had
enough reading strategies.
Some students rush through the books to upgrade their
rank.
Raz-Kids moves them to the next level even if I did not
assign the next level to them.
My students have a hard time with taking quizzes. I had
to teach how to navigate the quiz portion of Raz-Kids
Making enough time for the students to use Raz-
Rocket.
I am still not sure if Raz-Kids helps improve my students
reading levels. I still have to do guided reading.
Why my Kindergarten Students
!think Raz-Kids is AWESOME
