Here are a few tips to help get students off to a good start.
Make sure you have the right tools.
In addition to a desktop or laptop computer, make sure students using Raz-Kids, Raz-Plus, Science A-Z, or Headsprout have the right tools to access the Kids A-Z app.
See our System Requirements FAQ for more detailed information.
You can use classroom computers or the computer lab in your school to schedule independent practice time, or have students access the Kids A-Z learning environment from any computer with an Internet connection.
Personalized Student Login Cards and a Letter to Parents found on the Roster page have all the log-in information that students and parents need.
Turn on the Reading Room to motivate students with free-choice reading. You can also turn on the incentives that allow them to spend earned stars to personalize their avatar and to purchase items for their Raz Rocket. Our intermediate portal allows students to customize their learning area with different background they purchase and earn. Badges also reward students for achieving milestones and incentivize them to complete more activities.
You may disable the Reading Room, Raz Rocket, and Avatar Builder for the class or an individual student if enough time is not being spent on assignments.
Provide headsets for the best sound quality and to minimize disturbance and distraction resulting from students listening to books, completing interactive lessons, responding to instructions, or making recordings.
Types of headsets include:
Plug-in USB (recommended)
