3B Weekly Note

Dear 3B Families,

We are happy to tell you that your children have access to hundreds of eBooks through our class’ subscription to RAZ-Kids. Students can read, listen to, and even self-record reading these books. Students can access the sites digitally through links from the 3rd Grade TPS Student Central page https://sites.google.com/a/tpschool.org/tps-studentcentral/3rd-grade-site using the information below:

  1. Click on: Raz-Kids for 3B
  2. Username: Click on student’s name.
  3. Password: Student’s TPS password

Reading comprehension quizzes along the way show the progress that children are making. You can see which books your child has read, send messages, and review activity using the Parent Access area. Simply log in as your student, click the "Parents" link in the upper right, register, then follow the log-in instructions emailed to you. Teachers will get a weekly email of eBook activity. We’re also excited about RAZ-Kids because it includes a collection of books in Spanish.

Please note: Reading books on RAZ-Kids is an option for students. We will not assign reading unless we think that assignments will help children to meet reading goals. If you’d like us to create assignments for your child because it helps if reading assignments come from us, we are happy to do that, too.


This week, ask me…

  • about the author visit; 
  • about Encuentro;
  • what I learned about germs and handwashing;
  • how The World According to Humphrey ended;
  • about our seed activity at SCEE.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Diane and Anna
3B Teachers
