I am so glad you came onto our class
following part of our class website
is just for you. It contains
information about my expectations for
RAZ Kids and how you will be graded
each week. I have also included
some websites for you to go on that
are educational and fun!
A to Z (RAZ Kids):
I am so excited to have your child reading
books at their level online this year!
The fun thing about doing their Reading A to Z
reading this way verses through the paper
books, is that they are able to earn "RAZ
Rocket points" which can be used to spruce up
their Reading A to Z rocket. Having your
child read their books online, allows me to
login and review their books read and quizzes.
Expectations of RAZ reading:
- Students are expected to read a MINIMUM
of one book per week at their current
- They are also required to take a quiz on
that book. The goal is to get 80% or
higher on their quiz.
- A grade will be taken on their first
attempt at the quiz.
- If they do not have "mastery" on the quiz
after their first attempt, they must reread
the story and take the quiz again.
Ultimately, we are trying to build on your
child's comprehension of what they
- You should still be listening to your
child's reading of their RAZ kids books.
A grade for your child reading their RAZ book
and taking the comprehension quiz will be
scored as follows:
- 80% to 100% on first quiz attempt:
- 70% to 79% on first quiz
- 60% to 69% on first quiz
- 59% or less on first quiz
