http://storybird.com/books/the-picnic-6/ “ I used Storybird to get the students writing short stories. They have all done at least one story. We will continue to work on Storybird but we will expand our lessons to editing and revising instead of just getting the words done on the screen. This is a nice way for students to practice their writing at home and it is more exciting than simply writing the story down on paper.” Emily K
Raz Kids is a great way to track down each individual reading level. And kids are following their own progress and are being part of their own growth. Good for kids that have a short concentration span as the books are short and on their level. Kids that need to have the motivation of earning stars and points. This will encourage them to read more. It is a very structured way of reading and kids can see their own progress. They can do it independently, with a headphone on and they won't get distracted as much as reading aloud in groups. They work at their own level. And kids feel that. It's great for teachers to be able to differentiate and to spend individual time with kids when needed. - Gisela D http://istgrade2.wordpress.com/?s=raz+kids
