All students and families at PS 133 now have free access to two great online reading resources, KidsA-Z (RAZ) and ReadingA-Z.
These reading resources offer more than a thousand leveled books in English, Spanish and French, for kids to read at home, at school or on the go!
After reviewing the information below, if you have any questions about using RAZ or ReadingA-Z, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or Dual Language Coordinator, Dalila Rabsatt at email@example.com.
KidsA-Z(RAZ) offers interactive reading on a PC, tablet or phone. Kids can follow along as a text is read aloud in English or Spanish. To log-in to KidsA-Z, download the mobile app form Google Play or the Apple App store, or visit www.kidsA-Z.com. Log-in with the individual password provided by your child’s classroom teacher. Please note that RAZ is an activity kids can do, and enjoy doing, on their own (they earn points for every book they read, so it’s kind of like a game).
ReadingA-Z offers downloadable, printable versions of the same books in English, Spanish and also French. There are also worksheets and other printable resources. To download printable books, log-in to www.readingA-Z.com with the password provided by your class parent. Select “Resources,” then “Leveled Books” to select English titles. When you highlight a book’s cover, you can navigate to Spanish and French translations of the same text. To go directly to all Spanish or French books, select “Resources” then “World Languages.” ReadingA-Z is really a resource for teachers and parents, and while many kids enjoy assembling the books with a parent, it’s not something they can do on their own.
