Technology Tools- Wired Wednesday

        ReadWorks is another great site for librarians and teachers.  Your teachers will love love this site.   Read works  provides FREE lesson  plans  for educators in grades K-6.  Their goal is to help improve reading comprehension.  The site also gives state by state standards and aligns them with the Common Core- so they are keeping right up to date.
      Some inside items:
     Over 1,000 non-fiction reading passages with associated text-dependent question sets, leveled using the Lexile framework and  easy to use lesson plans that help you explicitly teach comprehension to K-6 students.
       There are Student Handouts, Graphic Organizers and Teacher Materials that can be easily downloaded and printed for your use. There is a Save  to my Binder where you can save lessons, and also a training center that  gives hints and tips on teaching lessons.


  1. This is amazing. I attended a workshop today and yesterday with third and fourth grade teachers who were looking for reading passages. This is perfect!!! I can't wait to tell them about it. Thank you!

    1. I think the more we share our findings with staff the more they will see how much we can be of help to them. Then they will see what a great value school librarians are and how much they can do to help with the mission of the schools curriculum! Thanks for the shout out!
