  10. 13. 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
