Earlier this week I posted an entry about an app called Raz-Kids and discussed how teachers were using it at an elementary student level.
Adding to the Raz-Kidz program,Ms. Laura, our Grade 4 Language Arts and Science teacher has introduced her students to Newsela, a site which offers real-world articles relating to various subjects. Ms. Laura has her Grade 4's integrating their reading session with their Science once a week when she selects a number of Science articles for them to choose from. These articles can then be read at various reading lexile levels.
