Ten Websites with Free Articles and Passages

With this in mind, I've been rounding up my favorite go-to websites for free articles and passages for upper elementary, and I thought I would share those with you. Science News for Kids is a fabulous website that contains interesting and informative stories about research and current events that are all STEM related. Two things that I really love about the articles are that they come with "power words" located under the text as well as a link to classroom related questions.

The articles are arranged by topics, and each article can be easily printed if desired. I realize that most teachers are very familiar with Readworks, but if you have not joined readworks, I highly encourage you to. Common Lit is another fabulous website that contains passages for grades 5-12 and has recently added content for 3rd and 4th grade as well. Time for Kids.

It’s been too long since I’ve written about improving reading skills.

6 Excellent Free Sites to Practise Reading Comprehension

Last time I posted about sites to help you practise reading comprehension was in May last year. Way too long. The truth is that doing reading comprehension activities in class takes time, especially if we are talking about long texts with an amount of difficulty, and very often this is one of the tasks we give students as homework. On the other hand, I am one of those teachers who think reading aloud in class is a good exercise. In my opinion, These are some of the sites I’ve been recommending my students to further practise reading comprehension.They are all completely free. 1. I teach different levels, and what I like most about Newsela is that you can give the same news article to all your classes no matter the level. The site also offers a multiple choice exercise to test your comprehension of the article. Although you have to sign up, the site is free. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Hope you find these sites useful!
