I'll be available Tuesdays and Thursdays until 10 AM, and of course you can email me anytime. I love searching for resources and working with kids, so please let me know what I can do to make your life easier.
Tween Tribune: this free site lets you create a class list and assign articles to read. Most articles include quizzes, and you can have your students comment on the articles as well. Students can adjust the exile level of the article to fit their needs.
Wonderopolis: this free site contains a "Wonder of the Day" with an article, video and pictures on a specific topic. There are questions and vocabulary as well as additional teacher resources and a place for students to submit their own 'wonderings'.
Curriculet: Although many of the books are fee-based, there are lots of classic books and non-fiction articles that you can get for free. They recently added current news articles at three reading levels (low/middle/high). Currciulet links to Edmodo through the Edmodo app store. There are pre-made quizzes and notes, or you can add your own. Students can highlight words to get a definition.
