Additional Writing Option: Below you will find a link for a FREE resource called Write Reader. Students started learning how to create books online and they enjoy using this format.
You can login here: https://app.writereader.com/login.
The class code is rdv1 and the username is child's first name (first letter uppercase).
Students can use Write Reader to create their own books on any topic they choose! This may require some guidance.
I should be able to view all books as students work on them! I can't wait to see them!
I have created RAZ-KIDS accounts for everyone in the class. This program allows students to read ebooks and take quizzes at their level. Please read at least TWO books per week from Raz-Kids. Once logged into Raz-Kids, students will also have access to HEADSPROUT which has self-paced phonics and comprehension skill lessons.
Step 1: Go to www.kidsa-z.com
Step 2: Enter or choose teacher's username ---> hkaraffa
Step 3: Your child finds his/her username on the class chart
Step 4: You child enters his/her password (first name, first letter capital)
Raz-Kids has an app for Apple, Android, & Amazon!
I also highly encourage you sign up for EPIC (free until June 30th) to have access to thousands of books that are fun and engaging. I often put collections of books in student mailboxes on EPIC that they can read or do “research” on. EPIC also has a DRA tab that has leveled books so students are reading books at their independent or instructional level. Please let me know if you would like your child’s reading level.
Below you will find reading strategies that your child should be using as they read. When they finish reading, have your child retell the stories and ask questions about it. If it’s a non-fiction book, have them share facts that they have learned. In the documents section above, I have included reading response sheets that can be used to build comprehension skills.
