ICT & Early Literacy (Weekly Reading Reflection Week 10)

Amelia K. Moody, author of Using Electronic Books in the Classroom to Enhance Emergent Literacy Skills in Young Children, discusses the use of E-books within a classroom. I have personal experience with this as a guided reading teacher. This year, my school purchased a new E-Book software called Reading A-Z Kids (or RAZ Kids for short). RAZ Kids is an extension of the program Reading A-Z. It provides a library of differentiated books at 29 levels of difficulty students use to practice reading in school, at home, or on the go. A great thing about RAZ kids is it allows students to read on their own level, practice close reading skills, practice reading and writing connections, use interactive tools, and answer constructed response quiz questions. I have seen how RAZ Kids makes young readers more confident, which in turn will help boost their reading levels.
