Description: In the article which centers on raz kids login, the author mainly shows parents how to record stories using the Raz-Kids program. This feature can be used to help kids hear themselves read and to send recordings to their teacher. It’s a great way to build a home and school connection.
This is Mr. Haas here, today I want to show you how simple it is to have your child use raz kids in order to record themselves reading, this is a great feature of the program, it’s simple to do, it allows your child to be able to hear themselves read which is a very important skill to help them build fluency and to listen to see if their reading sounds correct.
It’s also a great way for your child to send their reading to me, I can send communications back and give them bonus points which can be seen on your child screen,today we’re going to use a test student but you should have your child’s name on the screen and passwords were sent home in order to access each child account.
When I click on this screen, it’s going to take me to the book room in the reading assignment, the reading assignment is a great place because the books that are seen here are the books currently at your child’s level, we do tests about every two to three weeks or so to check on progress.
My test student is currently set at a level A, we’re working towards a level B, I’m going to select a book, for today we’re going to try Carlos goes to school, there are two books that you find underneath them, one is an ear and one is an eye.
The ear means that the book is going to be read to your child but since we’re going to be creating a recording, we’re going to use the purple book with the eye, books can be recorded on a computer, a laptop, a tablet or a smartphone, it’s much simpler on a tablet or an iPhone, the microphone is easy to access at that point.
The computer is a little bit more hidden but they work the same on any type of device that you use, in order for me to access the microphone, I’m going to click on this arrow up here, I’m going to see a series of buttons, I’m going to click on this red microphone.
I’m going to click on the record button, it’s going to access my microphone that’s built into my computer, before you begin reading, we need to make sure your microphone is working, start by clicking on the green allow button, when you get ready, say your name into the microphone.
Now listen to what you recorded, if you hear your name, click yes, click the red record button and begin reading aloud, when I click my button, it’s going to automatically start recording my reading, it’s very important when we get to the end because if we go a little bit too far, we do not have the ability to send the book to the teacher.
We need to learn how to do that today so that there can be a communication between home and school, let’s see how that works, Carlos goes to school, Carlos goes to school, I get my backpack, I get my pencils, I get my ruler, I get my eraser, I get my crayons, I get my sweater, I get my sister, I get my lunch, I get my hug, I get my ride.
Then this is the important part, we need to make sure that we do not click on this done button, because we lose the ability to send this assignment on, when I see that done button in this last page, I’m going to click the stop button, once I’m here, these three options green buttons light up as options.
I can push the play button so that I can hear myself read the story, I can click on new to record a reading or the send button which sends it to me, if your child click that send button, it’s going to go into teacher’s basket and I’m able to listen to your child’s recording.
I’m able to send them a note to their Raz-kids account, I’m able to award bonus points, once we send it, we still have the option to go back and listen to ourselves read, if I go back to the beginning of the page, I can hear myself if I push that play button.
I’m going to stop that, it is simple, once they have that, we can go back, they can practice reading and making recordings and sending them out, this is a great program, it’s a great way to encourage your child to read, it’s also a great way for them to access books that are currently at their reading level.
I hope that this is helpful, I hope that the kids enjoy making recordings of themselves, I look forward to hearing them read.
