I love it

We are loving this site!

That is right my dear.

Please make your site digital for students. Let them read and answer questions digitally. Allow submission to teachers. We have limited copies and I love using the selections from this site.

Hello there! Recently, ReadWorks launched its new digital platform, digital.readworks.org. On this new digital platform teachers can search our library of articles and their corresponding curriculum, assign them digitally to students, and see student results. Students on their end will be able to view their assignments, complete them digitally, and see their results. As an educator, you should be able to use the same username and password you have for www.readworks.org to sign up for digital.readworks.org. You can add students to your class on the site by either rostering them or inviting them to login with their Google accounts. Hope that helps. Happy teaching!

It would be so great if I could link this to my google classroom directly from this site.

I used this site for 3years with my fifth and first graders. They enjoyed the variety of topics.
Thanks

Very useful as I can have a number of reading abilities working on similar type of questions

Since I've signed up to this site recently I have noticed there are a lot of great and interesting learning materials for my grandson. This is a great site.

A great site!

I love this story and my students love this story too. Diane thanks for the lesson on YouTube of Mission:SPACE. It was a great video, my students love this video too. So, Thanks! Thank You Read Works!

This website is a wonderful tool for science and social studies teachers. I have always wanted to incorporate additional reading opportunities in my lesson but I have struggled to find the resources that would allow me too. Thank you Read Works!

This was a high interest to my students and I really think that they loved it! They had a lot of homework and this is what they really enjoyed!

My 5th grade group (all boys) loved this high interest story! After doing the lesson, I showed them a You Tube video of Mission:SPACE, the attraction at Epcot. We then had a good discussion about why you need to graduate from high school and go to college so maybe you too can become a Disney Imagineer. Thanks!

Thanks for the you tube video idea!!!

This program is great and I have been learning tons of new strategies to use in class.

I think this is a great website.
