This week we are featuring a great free tool to help students understand text. Rewordify will simplify text selections or entire web pages with highlighted vocabulary words for faster comprehension and vocabulary building.
To get started, go to: https://rewordify.com/
Copy/paste your text or enter the web page URL and click on the "Rewordify text" button.
One of my favorite ways to use Rewordify is with current events/nonfiction reading.
Here is a current event article from Tween Tribune with a Lexile of 560L. If this article is within the instructional range of my students, I can use Rewordify to help them develop comprehension and build vocabulary.
I have copied and pasted the article URL into Rewordify:
Rewordify has simplified the text and highlighted vocabulary words. If you hover with your cursor over the highlighted selection, you will see the replaced word (for example see "realize" in the image above.)
Another idea is to share the link to the Rewordify article directly with your students in Google Classroom so they go directly to the article.
I hope you explore the possibilities of Rewordify with your students to develop comprehension and vocabulary!
