Teachers have control over what their students are reading. Wushka’s coloured Reading Boxes contain Readers that have been carefully levelled from Magenta (Levels 1-2) through to Black (Level 31++), based on the familiar NZ Colour Wheel system.
Support materials are provided for every Wushka Reader, and include online quizzes, printable lesson plans, literacy activities, blackline masters and assessment tools. These support materials have been developed using Learning Media’s decades of educational publishing experience and Wushka’s modern approach to learning.
When a school signs up for a Wushka Annual Site Licence, students and teachers are immediately granted 24-hour access to Wushka. Wushka’s Readers can be used in classroom activities, and can also be set for home or holiday reading.
Wushka levelled reading is an excellent cloud based program that is being enjoyed by my 6/5 composite class. The program is easy to set up and provides me as the class teacher excellent information on what and how the students are reading. The variety of text is impressive and the lesson plans and blackline masters associated with the text are great. Students in my class are asking to do reading groups so they can logon to Wushka.Lyn J
Staff are really happy with the program as it has encouraged students disengaged in reading to be more enthusiastic in reading groups and during independent reading activities. The program also allows for students to choose from a very wide range of texts and genre.Pauline H
I personally like the way you can select books that are appropriate to each child’s reading level and they can check their own level of understanding of a text through receiving a score for questions answered after reading the book.Tania H
