And the Player of the Day Is...

Each morning at 7:45, Mrs. Plyler's second grade class is huddled together on the class meeting area carpet. It is so silent you could hear a pin drop. The students are waiting with anticipation to find out who the new Player of the Day is. 

The Player of the Day award is given out each day in Mrs. Plyler's class to the student with the most books read on Raz Kids.  Raz Kids is a website which allows students to read and listen to text online, practice fluency, learn new vocabulary and increase reading comprehension.  A  subscription for each class was purchased by our generous Hemby Bridge PTO. Students are given a username and password and can read online at www.raz-kids.com. This can be used in the classroom but is especially great for reading at home.

In Mrs. Plyler's class, the class spends 3 minutes every morning logging on to the website to see which student is the new Player of the Day. The Player of the Day gets to wear a super cool "Player of the Day" necklace and earns a prize. Mrs. Plyler's class LOVES reading with Raz Kids!
