Reading A-Z

Reading A-Z is among the family of Learning A-Z websites providing affordable, online curriculum resources.

Launched in January 2002, Reading A-Z now has more than 170,000 members and has won a number of educational awards for its innovation in reading instruction. Among the awards are a Parents' Choice Recommended Award, a Global Learning Initiative Award, and a Teachers' Choice Award.

Because it is delivered over the Internet, Reading A-Z is a constantly changing program. Each month, Reading A-Z adds new books, lesson plans, and other resources, thus continually expanding its wealth of materials.

The website has more than 2,500 downloadable books (including English, Spanish, and French versions) and thousands of teaching and learning materials.

In addition to the K-6 market, Reading A-Z materials have found widespread use at a range of grade levels in special education and special needs, remedial reading, ESL, and ELL.
