I am very thankful of a resource where I can obtain materials for students on varying reading levels. It is hard to produce on my own... I appreciate them giving me the lexile score for the piece and the grade level. This helps me know which will be of the most interest to my students. It also helps me meet student's individual needs.

I like this site because I am able to help my students to read something on their grade level. These lessons are nice and short, so they do not get lost in material that is too wordy. I expect improvement in my students reading comprehension skills.

I am so grateful for this site. My 9 year old son excels in all subjects except reading and comp. These lessons are nice and short and keeps his attention span. I expect great improvement in comprehension skills.

My students in class love Read Works!
