What it is: Every year, Learning A-Z celebrates Teacher Appreciation week with an open house where teachers can explore all that Learning A-Z has to offer for FREE!! Each day you can access another portion of the Learning A-Z tools. This is one of those sites that I have paid for and used since I started teaching. I love Reading A-Z because it has books that my students can print off and take home with them for every reading and interest level.

Find new resources for your classroom and explore what Learning A-Z has to offer your students. I think you will be impressed by the resources available here!
As a new teacher, I relied heavily on Reading A-Z to help bulk up my classroom library. Students loved being able to color in and take home the Reading A-Z books.
Set up your classroom computers with Raz Kids for the week, students can have fun practicing those reading skills in a fresh new way all week long!
Hunt down your science units and download resources that teach important concepts while being accessible to students of all reading levels.
