Educational Websites

Reading

www.raz-Kids.com. I used this website with a few of my students last year. It has a very big e-book collection and displays them in levels that are very similar to the one we use at ASK.  You also have the option of hearing the book read to you, recording your voice, and taking a quiz.

There is also www.ReadingA-Z.com (has big collection of printable books and comprehension questions) and www.VocabularyA-Z.com.

Math, Handwriting, and Phonics Practice

This site is divided by grade level, click on “1st-2nd grade” in the top tool bar.
