User Comments

so useful thank you.

These reading passages and question sets are really helpful in making connections to concrete concepts studied in science. They really challenge the thought process.

these passages are perfect for my students. they help them out and at the same time challenges their brains because they need to go back to the text to find their answers

Thank you thank you

I just had 10 minutes to myself and went to ReadWorks on the recommendation of a colleague.
This is an amazing site for my 7th graders. I have printed out three articles and vocab worksheets to start next week.

VERY user friendly and VALUABLE for CC and our standardized assessments.

THANK YOU!
