Reading


Scholastic Word Workshop: A FREE super easy tool to create your own word wall cards.  Word Workshop has already chosen word lists for you to choose from, or create your own.  Select your words, border, font, size, etc to customize what you need in your classroom.  So easy!  So free!

Read Theory: Yay!  A free reading resource that levels reading after students work through the questions! Reading levels and questions fluidly move up and down based on assessment scores as students progress through the program.

BiblioNasium: Get kids interacting with their reading by logging their minutes or pages, writing recommendations, or reviewing the books they've read.  Like a combination of Twitter and Shelfari, but for students.  Check out how to navigate the website and see how I use BiblioNasium in the classroom.

Scholastic Word Wizard:  Level books and get a story summary with this free website and app.  Great for Guided Reading time or conferring with students looking for "just-right" books.

Florida Center for Reading Research:  This website is FULL of complete reading activities.  Everything is done and ready to print and use- awesome for quick centers or reviews in class for small groups or Guided Reading time.  Did I mention it's all done for you??

Storyline:  Storyline offers a small selection of books all read by SAG Award Foundation actors.  There aren't a ton of books there, but they have some good ones by Patricia Polacco and some popular titles including A Bad Case of Stripes and The Rainbow Fish.

BookSource Classroom Organizer:  Free app and website for organizing your classroom library.  Also, sign up for their newsletters for the latest book updates.  This website has tons of resources and information.

Newsela:  Current events and news for students.  With a free registration, you can access all articles and level them by Lexile level.  Some articles have quizzes for easy assessment.
