How to pick good books
Part of reading, increasing comprehension, fluency, accuracy and expanding vocabulary is being able to pick out books that fit the needs of the reader.
Raz-kids.com is available to the students in Mme Johnston's class. I have purchased a subscription and signed each student up. My username is Jillianjiggs. They simply click on their name and they have access to a whole library of books. They can read the books themselves or have the book read to them and then complete the comprehension quiz. A report is sent to me so I can see how each student is doing.
