Newsela Free Summer Reading Challenge

Newsela Free Summer Reading Challenge | ELA - CCSS Classroom Support and Information | Scoop.it

"For those many kids who choose not to read books, for those kids who are news junkies, for those kids who choose to focus on nonfiction, for those kids who read everything anyway, and for those kids who are motivated by regular, tangible rewards, Newsela’s Free Summer Reading Challenge may be just the thing to engage students with the world, while attacking potential summer reading slump."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 27, 7:50 PM

If you haven't had a chance to check out the website Newsela this may be a great opportunity to take a look at it and share it with students (if you have an easy way to access them).

Newsela provides news at five reading lexiles, from Grade 3 or 4 through Grade 12. When you log in there will be a choice of articles to choose from. After reading you may choose to take a quiz.

Although this challenge has started you may still sign up. The post provides additional details and links to the website.

Lisa Norris's curator insight, July 5, 11:15 AM

Excellent source of informational articles relevant to the world and students in upper elementary grades.
