How I Use It
I use it currently in the library as a free-reading experience. I am going to be introducing it to 3rd and 4th grade classrooms for small group work. The set-up time came in complications with our school's web filtering system. News-O-Matic provided very helpful and responsive tech support.
I have been using this tool for 5 months and have been very impressed with their consistently engaging stories, geared for kids ages 7-10. They write about a wide range of topics, drawing kids in with funny stories as well as providing age-appropriate information about tragedies home and abroad.
