All students will be instructed on how to use the program, and they will all have the basic directions on how to log in and use the program. Please e-mail me if you are having trouble logging in, or any other issues related to RAZ KIDS. 

ELL STUDENTS who see me for the ESL class every day:

use RAZ KIDS LEVELED BOOKS for 15 to 30 minutes daily for ESL during the period when we are on - line learning.


**The program allows you to LISTEN to both fiction and nonfiction books being READ ALOUD to you, and then you can  RECORD yourselves READ TO SELF (and I can check the recording); you have to pass a COMPREHENSION QUIZ, and finally, you can CREATE a PIECE of WRITING by answering questions based on the book.

*The writing part can be sent to me via e-mail (take a picture of it and attach it to my e-mail)/ *this is optional.

 We will also work on the correct usage of English grammar, with plenty of practice exercises for each topic. All language skills will be covered on a daily basis:

Listening - as students listen for directions 

Reading - all students will be given the chance of reading to the teacher
