The Reading Essentials Collection

Leveled and Adaptive Resources to Develop Essential Reading Skills

Reading is the key to all learning, but learning to read can be a challenge for many students. Our Reading Essentials Collection includes Raz-Plus and Headsprout to provide an array of reading resources for PreK-6 grade students.  Whether used for students just learning to read or as a tool for gifted learners the products offered in the Reading Essentials Collection provide the assessment, practice, and instruction students need to acquire and strengthen a spectrum of essential reading skills.

Personalized Instruction

Reading skills are best taught through hands-on instruction. Raz-Plus offers a number of printable and projectable resources designed to enhance reading instruction in whole-class, small-group, or one-to-one environments. With a library of leveled books at 29 different reading levels, worksheets, lesson plans, and activities available in print and digital formats, Raz-Plus makes it easy to personalize instruction for a range of learning levels.

Engaging Practice

In order to refine and improve their reading skills, students must practice each day. Raz-Plus also provides an engaging eLearning environment where students can practice reading developmentally appropriate books in computer-based and mobile formats. Teachers can also digitally assign a number of books and resources to practice foundational skills, close reading, and critical thinking.

Adaptive Learning

Every student learns to read in his or her own way and at their own pace. The Headsprout reading program provides an entire sequence devoted to teaching children a range of foundational and advanced reading skills. Built-in benchmark assessments ensure that students have achieved mastery before they move on to more advanced skills.
