What free reading websites do you use? I teach 3rd grade, but have reading levels ranging from P-K to about 5-6 grade level. (DRA 8-40+)

Iíve used/use:
Epic - great for online books and free with an educator account

Readworks - reading passages at various levels. Many passages include vocab tasks and comp questions

Frontrowed.com- free version is good. Passages with open ended and MC questions. You can assign students the same passages at different levels. For example if you assign a passage about frogs you can give some readers the passage a Lexie 400 and others the same topic at 800. Make sense??

NewsELA is good with current news stories written simpler for kids

That is all that comes to mind right now as I sit at urgent care with my daughter Iíve had success with all those and have used them recently in conjunction with Google Classroom.

I also recommend Readworks.org
It is a geat site with fiction and nonfiction passages. If you have laptops or tablets, you can make a teacher account and assign passages to the kids to do online. It's free! Love it!

Doright, I hope your daughter is on the mend.

ReadWorks and ReadTheory

They take two different approaches to building comprehension. Readworks has lots of fiction and nonfiction articles with question sets. They've recently gotten more into leveled versions of the same articles. You can print these or do them online. They also have Article a Day, which is a good way to build prior knowledge in science and social studies. Readtheory is truly individualized because students take a placement test and then the computer assigns stories at their level, adjusting up and down as students work through questions. I think Readtheory is computer-based only. Another idea is Newsela, which has leveled articles as well. But it's heavily current events based, and if there's a catastrophe or a political event, you may or may not want to have to deal with it. I think Newsela is not free, but I'm not sure how much it costs.
