How I Use It
This website provides a large amount of reading materials for various reading levels. It provides an excellent tool for teachers to provide sound reading instruction by using quality, leveled materials. There are assessment passages, letter/sound recognition books, decodable word texts, shared reading, and guiding reading texts. There are also lesson plans that accompany the books for teachers to use. The lesson plans provide enrichment, extension, writing, and school to home activities.
I used this website every day in my classroom with both whole groups and small groups. The varying types of materials has been very useful in meeting my students' instructional needs. I liked the ability to search for content topics as well as specific reading strategies or comprehension skills. It has also been very helpful to have these materials in transitioning to the Common Core and WV NextGen Standards. The price is the only negative aspect of this website; however, I found it to be worth it.
