RAZ KIDS

Razz Kids is currently in use by lower core students at Gisler. With it, your student will access text specifically matched to their reading level. Every eBook allows your child to listen to the text, read it back at their own pace, and record themselves reading. The corresponding quiz tests comprehension and helps the teacher determine future instruction.
