Thank you. The students can learn different subject area from one site.

Thank you! These look terrific, especially the non-fiction titles!

This is good for my ESL newcomers

I just downloaded it for the same reason! My 3rd grade Newcomers are reading Charlotte's Web and I thought this would be the perfect background building passage about spiders. I also love that there are pictures associated with the questions as it's a great support for level 1-2 ELDs.

This is Great!

Great.

Will use for 1st and 3rd grade SPED

This is good for teaching how to use an Expository Graphic Organizer. Thanks!!

Thanks for all your help! These passages are wonderful and the kids love them. A big thanks!

Used it with a lower level 3rd grade resource group and it was informative and held their attention.

This looks helpful.
