Your child has access to a reading program called Kids A-Z (Raz-Kids). It is being used at school and can now be accessed from home. If you would like your child to use this app at home, please follow these instructions.
Kids A-Z Login Instructions
Step 1: Go to www.kidsa-z.com
Step 2: Enter or choose the teacher’s username (scormack1)
Step 3: Your child finds his or her username on the class chart.
Step 4: Your child enters his or her password.(The children are assigned one or two pictures. Hopefully, they remember it. If not, let me know and I can send it to you.)
Please note: First, the children listen to and read along with the book. It is important that they know how to read it by themselves so they can then record the story independently using the microphone. If not, they should go back and listen to the story again. Once they have listened to and recorded the story independently, they may need to answer some questions about the story (depending on what group they are in). I want them to complete all these areas for each book before they move to another book. Please monitor their understanding of this program initially. They may still need some guidance. (They do not need to do the ‘connection’ page at the end unless they want to.)
