Reading Passages Website

untitled (41)

Students in most grades and schools are expected to read daily for homework. Some days, this might be reading for fun, reading with the family, or reading to a sibling as I have written about before. However, some kids need some extra practice reading and answering comprehension questions. I use a great website (free) to find leveled reading passages and question sets for the students that I tutor. The site is called www.readworks.org. “ReadWorks provides over 1,800 non-fiction and literary (fiction) reading passages, each with a research- based question set to support student comprehension.” Once you log in, you can select grade level, lexile (reading) level, domain (subject), text type (non-fiction or literary), and skills/strategy (cause and effect, drawing conclusions, etc). I love this site because I can select texts that my students are interested in reading that are at their reading level. And, I don’t have to think of questions to ask because the questions, both ABCD and written responses, are right there for the student. Enjoy some new reading with your child.
