We know how important it is to have the right resources to teach a classroom with students who vary inability and we want you to know that our company is committed to creating quality resources for teachers. Those resources must make teachers’ lives easier, provide teachers with resources needed to differentiate instruction, maximize opportunity for practice and most importantly improve student learning.
Reading A-Z offers thousands of reading resources to build key skills students need to become proficient readers. Our printable books spend 27 levels of difficulty and cover a wide range of genres. Each book is accompanied by a comprehensive lesson plan that accesses prior knowledge and targets a comprehension skill, a comprehension strategy, vocabulary, high-frequency words, a phonics element as well as grammar and writing. In addition, each book has worksheets, a graphic organizer, discussion cards and a quiz. The books, worksheets, graphic organizers, and quizzes are available in a projectable format for projecting onto an interactive whiteboard or a non-interactive surface. The projectable resources come with tools for highlighting, underlining, circling, framing and stamping words or other things on the page.
We also provide many other printable resources including reader’s theater scripts, fluency passages, read aloud books, poetry books, lessons and worksheets, alphabet resources, and a complete systematic phonics program with decodable books. And many other resources too numerous to mention. Every word in Reading A-Z leveled readers is put through a computer generated analysis that looks at more than a dozen texts criteria. We are confident that we provide teachers for the most through and accurate leveling analysis available.

Unlike traditional textbook which are updated every 4 to 6 years, the web allows us to dynamically update our content within hours of a planet being downgraded or president winning the nobel peace prize. In addition to timely updates, we add brand new books on current topics along with other resources to our website every 4 to 6 weeks. And perhaps best of all, Reading A-Z is extremely affordable for what teachers would pay for two to three typical leveled reader six packs. They can get 24/7 access to thousands of books and other resources for their entire classroom all year long.
Now think about that, a wide selection of books for pennies for book plus a vast collection of other resources all available at just the click of a mouse. And students can keep the books to practice again and again.
