Newsela.com

They showed us this free resource at our meeting Wednesday. It is free and appropriately written for specific grade levels. The article distributed on Tuesday was about Kobe Bryant. Interesting non-fiction that you can relate to current events. How does it get any better? They also mentioned tweentribune.com as another similar resource.

Share at Professional Learning Wednesday

There are some great new and innovative teaching practices happening at Davis. Please share so all of our kids can benefit! You can also add ideas you would like shared.

Want to brag on a member of Team Davis?

So many great things going on!
