Summer 2017

    All K-2 Rochester City School District Families and Literacy Partners, 

    Learning A-Z is thrilled to launch a Summer Reading Contest with RAZ Kids entitled, Reading is a Super Power.   RAZ Kids offer students thousands of books at a simple click away.  Summer presents a great opportunity for student to harness their very own super powers.  Promoting reading can encourage students to Go on Adventures, Travel Around the World, Enjoy Classics, Tell Rhymes and Riddles, and so much more.  Promote the Hero that is in every student!

    We all know children lose literacy skills over the summer. But the skill loss can be avoided if students are encouraged to read over the summer time. Providing books at the just right level is paramount in preventing skill lost.   By using these resources, students get to read a book in four different modes: listen, online read with word support, online read without support, and traditional book format. This flexibility allows students to take books everywhere they go and authentically grow their love for reading.

    We will celebrating the students who read the most RAZ Kids books from June 24, 2017  to August 24, 2017.

    The Reading Heroes will receive the following prizes to help develop their super powers.  A first, second, and third place winner will be randomly selected from the top 20 K-2 readers in Raz Kids.


    First Place: iPad Mini

    Second Place: Super Hero Cape & Custom (Designed T-Shirt by Student)

    Third Place: Super Hero Cape




    The teachers of the Reading Heroes will receive a super hero bag and gift card.

    Show off your super powers!
