Early literacy tool


A Balanced Reading Approach for Children Always Designed to Achieve Best Results for All (ABRACADABRA) is a highly interactive, early literacy web-based tool that supports beginning readers through dozens of engaging activities and digital stories.

Taking a balanced reading approach, ABRA helps children in the early elementary years develop skills in phonological awareness, reading fluency, comprehension, and writing.

Young readers also have access to READS, a repository of over 450 free digital stories in 27 different languages that have been catalogued by theme, genre, reading level, country of origin, and language.

ABRA includes teacher professional development materials (training videos, assessment tools, a communication tool) as well as literacy resources for parents.
