User Comments

I love the addition of the StepReads! I have used ReadWorks before at the middle school level and loved it for the correlation to standards and the test practice it provided. Now I appreciate it even more as I am teaching ELL students who are a wide range of fluency levels. I'm excited for the start of the new year and to see where my students are in their fluency and skills! Thank you ReadWorks!

A multi-engaging learning experience for my child including reading comprehension,science development and written expressions!

Perfect! Science, reading all in one. I teach self contained middle school classroom with children with varying disabilities and abilities. I love this web site. This activity will be combined with a lab that will reinforce what's being learned here.

Perfect introduction to the Science Project the kids will be working on.

Loved it!

works for me and cross curricular activities...great

This is great! Just what I was looking for!

This is perfect. It is cross curricular and helps support our current science unit, while working on reading skills.

Excellent passage!
