Raz-Plus resources organized into weekly content-based units and differentiated instruction options.
Raz-Plus provides high-quality Ukrainian translated books in printable, projectable, and electronic formats.
This Ukrainian book collection includes 29 levels of text that progressively increase
in difficulty to help students improve their Ukrainian literacy skills. Dual language or bilingual learners
can read Ukrainian texts at their level and in their areas of interest anytime with 24/7 Web access to get
the practice they need to become better, more confident readers.
The Ukrainian Translated Leveled Books are an essential support for students in dual language, bilingual, and immersion programs. The carefully leveled books help emerging bilinguals develop their comprehension and fluency as they become better, more confident Ukrainian readers.
The range of fiction and nonfiction text types ensure that students can find topics that appeal to them while also connecting literacy and content-area instruction.
There can be a broad range of reading ability within any group of emerging bilinguals. The guided reading, or leveled reading,
instructional approach allows teachers to place students into small groups and provide each group with developmentally appropriate texts.
The English lesson plans provide a clear sequence of steps for practicing specific skills and strategies.
The eBooks provide opportunities for independent practice following each guided reading session or anytime a student has access to the Internet through a computer or tablet.
Ukrainian Translated Leveled Books work well paired with the corresponding English book for promoting literacy development in both languages.
ALL resources that support a book can be found on its homepage.
Raz-Plus Ukrainian Translated Leveled Books come in different formats to meet independent, small-group, and whole-class objectives.
Printable Books can be used in class or sent home for practice. Color, black and white, single-sided, and double-sided printed options are available.
Projectable Books can be used with digital projectors and interactive white boards. Projectable Book Tips explain how to reach objectives for fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, grammar, and more using the tools provided.
Read eBooks allow students to read silently, whisper read, or record their reading using a headset or a computer's microphone and our built-in recording tools. Students can send these practice recordings to your Kids A-Z In Basket so you can check their fluency progress. You can also download and save the recordings to your computer as MP3 audio files.
Pocketbooks are the ideal size for students to take home for extra practice.

Guided Reading Lessons
Common Core Supplement
The Common Core Supplement plans provide additional focused instructional content to the regular guided
reading lessons. These plans support teachers in meeting objectives identified in the Common Core State Standards,
such as: academic vocabulary, text-dependent questions, and a constructed response to reading based on a key question.

Raz-Plus English leveled books have been carefully written using stringent guidelines and the proprietary, best-in-class Leveling System to ensure accuracy and consistency.
Ukrainian translators closely review the English Leveling Criteria as part of the translations process, but some books might seem easier or more difficult in Ukrainian than their English level specifies.
Teachers can use the English levels on the Ukrainian books as a reference point, but should use their professional knowledge when determining which Ukrainian Translated Leveled Books are the best fit for individual students.
Each guided reading session takes about 15 to 20 minutes and emphasizes higher-order thinking skills while providing the opportunity for deeper understanding of the text.
Guided reading begins with an introduction of the book and discussion to build background.
Students are placed in similar-ability groups and given developmentally appropriate books to read. The teacher monitors and guides each student's progress and reading as needed.
Discussion focuses on text-dependent questions which require students to cite evidence from one or more sections of the text to formulate responses.
The English lesson plan can provide ideas or support during instruction of the Ukrainian book.
