Cool New Tool Alert ~ Newsela

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2017)

Found a super, cool tool today that I want to share with teachers.  The tool is Newsela.  Here is what is so awesome about this tool.  

  • It is a perfect tool when working on reading skills with students.  
  • It provides daily current events articles that Newsela has lexiled for student use.  
  • It allows kids to “close read” non-fiction articles, a Common Core Standard at many grade levels.  
  • Some of the articles even have comprehension quizzes tied to them. 
  • Teachers can setup classes with students and assign readings, track students reading and scores.  
  • The best part… currently, this tool is free!

    I stumbled upon Newsela and am very excited to use this site to challenge my independent readers. I hope that this practice in nonfiction reading with high interest articles will help my higher readers be more successful with MAPS testing.
