LAZ Level K Library
By Language Technologies, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
FIRST GRADE TO SECOND GRADE READERS will love this library of 12 books. Each Learning A–Z library contains ten books on that reading level, the free sample book for that level, and the free sample book for the next level to challenge readers to expand their reading skills. Developmentally appropriate sentence construction, vocabulary, and engaging illustrations make it easy for readers to feel confident about their skills.
Learning A–Z provides materials delivered online and through the iTunes Store that help children learn to read, write, and discover the wonders of science. All our materials are leveled so that children can access information at their developmental level. Our leveled readers begin at level aa with labeling objects. In level A simple sentences are presented. With each level thereafter the sentences get more complex and the words become a little more difficult.
—Interactive glossary providing point-of-use definitions
—All books are carefully leveled, giving readers a developmental growth path to improve their reading skills
—All books end with discussion questions that check student comprehension and encourage critical thinking
—Classroom support through lesson plans, worksheets, and quizzes can be found at www.readinga-z.com (subscription required)
—All books support state and national core standards (correlation found at www.readinga-z.com)
A QUICK GUIDE IN PLACING YOUR CHILD at the appropriate reading level:
aa to C—kindergarten
D to J—first grade
K to Q—second grade
R to U—third grade
V to Z—fourth and fifth grade
ReadSmart is a set of patented technologies created by Language Technologies, Inc. for improving reading comprehension, speed, and enjoyment and is used in a variety of publishing fields. ReadSmart's algorithms analyze text to give document-specific results: the arrangement of text for a document is optimized while preserving the designer’s layout. Once a digital book has been created using ReadSmart technology, nothing is lost and it retains the look and feel of the printed edition, not a generic electronic document.
Same materials as school
These are a great way to access the perfect reading material for your young reader. My son loves how the pictures are in color, where as the ones they print off at school are black and white. They are good for reading with your child and are just like regular books. This is not for the person looking to have the app teach their child, but rather leveled materials that allow you to work with your child where they are in their reading.
There is no navigation button from midway through a book to the library - you have to page through to the end. There is no read aloud feature. There is no touch the word and have it read out loud and/or defined. It's a bunch of boring books put online with no use of the technology to turn it into something cool.
Not very impressed.
I love A to Z. However, I bought level K pack for my son for the questions at the end. Where are the question? Please import the questions and update the app!!!
