How I Use It
I use this website to build students nonfiction reading comprehension. Students read the articles in small groups or independently, apply various reading strategies, and answer the comprehension questions at the end. The questions are very good, both literal and inferential.
My Take
Overall, this website is an excellent resource for K-5 and students in special education. The articles are the perfect length, engaging, and the questions are both literal and inferential. I also like how the articles can be linked to Google classroom.
