Comprehension Units

It is difficult for teachers to purchase libraries when funds are in short supply. We are often scrambling to find sites students can visit that will provide reading activities to use in the classroom. Common Core is now in effect, and finding any material aligned with Common Core standards is always beneficial to the time-strapped teacher.

Readworks is a site that provides reading activities aligned with common core. They have released a set of of online books that are common core aligned, and separated by grade level.

With the K-5 stories, you are given a Lexile Score, Read Aloud Lessons, and sometimes given Paired-Text Questions. With the 6-8 Novels, you are told which areas of comprehension will be covered by the novel. Make sure to bookmark this site to access wonderful stories to enhance your teaching!
