Pre-K Tip Sheets
Use Raz-Plus Resources with Pre-Emergent Readers
Raz-Plus provides a variety of high-quality resources that can be used with students in the earliest stages of learning to read. The Pre-K Tip Sheets provide information on how to optimize our materials to help pre-emergent students learn the foundational skills necessary for reading success.
Why Use Pre-K Tip Sheets
Pre-emergent readers require some additional support when learning the foundational reading skills. The Pre-K Tip Sheets contain suggestions on how to use Raz-Plus resources to support the teaching of phonological awareness, high-frequency words, and letter recognition; as well as small group instruction and/or guided reading and assessments. They also provide ideas for whole-class, small-group, individual or center activities.
