Readorium students are taught how to read and understand nonfiction text through science-based content.
All lessons are aligned with the Common Core, and all content is based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
With more than 80 in-depth science eBooks in our virtual library, teachers can be confident that students will increase their science knowledge as they develop their skills as non-fiction readers.
Readorium students learn 16 new reading strategies that help build their reading comprehension skills based on the latest brain research. Through strategy raps, students have fun while learning our reading strategies!
Watch this video to see one of our strategy lessons.
From our Word Wizard World game to more than 1,500 interactive vocabulary cards, students develop a strong vocabulary as they use new words collected from the text they read.
“Rewards and incentives” is what students mention most often when they explain why they find Readorium so engaging.
From a top spot in our Hall of Fame, to medals and game tokens earned when successfully completing each book chapter, Readorium provides a strong motivational system for getting students to work diligently at reading.
One feature that helps students become expert readers is our Book Buddies. These mentors are there to guide students through every book chapter. They provide reading hints tailored to individual students as they use the program.
In the screenshot below, Heather explains what the first question in this book is asking while providing some useful tips for answering it correctly.
All Readorium students receive the same in-depth content and science vocabulary, and answer the same evidence-based comprehension questions. Readorium automatically differentiates instruction in several ways. As students use the program, the readability level of each chapter and the support they receive adjusts to their individual needs. Therefore, all students can reach the same high goals because they receive the support they need to attain those goals.
Here is an example of an easy reading level (left) compared to a more advanced level (right).
Teachers can see how many lessons each child completed and receive reading, content, and strategy progress reports in real time. All reports are sortable by any column of data, as required.
Teachers can easily see how their class is progressing overall, while also being able to drill down to see the strengths and challenges of each student.
Teachers can identify which student or students are struggling with each specific strategy in order to differentiate classroom instruction accordingly.
Teachers can also see student proficiency in the science content.
Individualized reports can be printed and used to guide conversations with students, parents, as well as other teachers in order to create a targeted learning environment for each student.
Administrators can access overall progress reports 24/7. They can drill down to the schools, teachers, and students they oversee.
Supplemental instructional lessons, graphic organizers and multimedia resources (click Teacher Resource Center) are available so teachers can easily target the needs of individuals, groups, or entire classes based on Readorium student progress data.
Teachers begin with access to Book Topic Pages which identify concepts and objectives as well as the vocabulary covered in each book. (National Standards are show, State Standards are available)
Readorium score reports assist teachers with identifying specific reading strategies and science topics that students struggle with. Teachers then access strategy lessons:
These lessons are paired with science text
Supplemental worksheets can be printed and used to hone the skills needed for nonfiction comprehension.
Universal graphic organizers can be used across the disciplines to focus learning and guide reading time.
