ReadWorks thank you for blessing educators with your website. There are no words to adequately express how grateful I am to have come across this website. I use your website at least 4 times a week. My students love the stories, the passage questions are awesome, a great way to assess students ability to answer literal and inferential questions, and the reading lexile is a definite plus. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great resource for teaching comprehension skills! Love the real life stories!!!

It was a fun thing to do w/ my kids!

I just wanted to say "Thank You!" for providing this awesome website. This is such an excellent resource. I taught 3rd grade last year and have many students who excelled in reading. Most were well below grade level and moved up to the 5th grade level. This year I am teaching these same students, as I have looped to 4th grade. I wanted an object assessment that included the lexile.
