Raz Kids- Online Reading Program

Our school has purchased a license for RAZ Kids that your child can use at home. I have set each child up with their correct instructional reading level. The program allows students to read/listen to a variety of books and take quizzes to earn points. The kids can spend their points in the Raz Rocket Room. This is a great tool that offers students extra reading practice. Also, I receive an email daily with updates on student progress so I can send kids messages and extra points as an incentive.

Scholastic Book Order

Your child is bringing home a Scholastic Book Order form. This is a great way to build your child's library at home at a reasonable price. Also, for every book ordered, our class earns points for free books. If you would like to order, you may use the online code (on the form) or send in a check made payable to Scholastic. Orders and money are due by Friday, September 13.
