Bugbee Elementary School students in grades K, 1 and 2, as well as Special Education students in grades K-5 will utilize the motivating on-line reading program Raz Kids to support their reading development. Students will have individualized reading accounts which gives them access to leveled fiction and non-fiction books to read both in the classroom and at home. Students will listen to books, read them independently and complete quizzes to assess their understanding of the book. The teachers in grades K-2 and the Special Education Resources teacher will be able to access through Reading A to Z many instructional materials, projectable books to share on a Smartboard, and leveled books which can be printed to support whole group, small group and individual reading instruction. Printed and online books can be read at home to strengthen the home-school partnership. These resources will help our youngest readers build their oral reading fluency, decoding skills, vocabulary and comprehension strategies.
