ICDL - International Children's Digital Library Chateau Meddybemps ENGLISH RULES1 Each day that week, they should write a new sentence for each rule. The next week, teach the next rule. Now the students will write a sentence for rules 1-3. Keep teaching new rules, and assigning all the rules learned so far.

#.VAeQjtGI70M This is a guest post from Beth Holland of, an advertiser on this blog. Whether you teach elementary, middle, or high school, a common challenge exists: finding non-fiction content at reading level. This is an especially pressing concern for teachers incorporating the CCSS Standards into their curricula. Given that varied reading levels may exist within a single class, it can seem virtually impossible to have all students access the same content in a way that allows them to comprehend the material. NEWSELA solves the first dilemma by providing teachers with a database of non-fiction articles. Sample NEWSELA article Though it is possible to create classes and push out content from within NEWSELA, by incorporating Google Docs, we can address the second challenge of allowing teachers to virtually be in multiple reading groups, and with multiple students, all at the same time. Sample Google Doc with Comments.
