Great Resource

Ilove Read Works.org

Wow, I had chills reading this. I'm hoping my students will make connections to the presidential elections and how it isn't always as obvious as it seems.

This could be a very useful website for teachers and students.

The passage helps to readily prepare students for state testing.

The articles/stories of this website are absolutely marvelous! The grade level options and type of book really help with the right article you need. This is the "BEST" website I have ever seen

What an interesting twist at the end!

Reading for pleasure is what children need.

I teach a Reading Intervention class and my student typically do not like to read. I was pleasantly surprised with the reaction this story recieved from the kids. The things they were saying proved that they really got into the story. Yea!

this means that the students were very happy to read about new things and to know what the story is talking about
