Last week we shared a tool for K-3 Reading and this week our tool is for 5-12. Commonlit is 100% free teachers and students and provides hundreds of fiction and non-fiction passages.
There are 3 Basic components:
Creating an account takes just minutes and you can then create a class. Your newly created class will get a code much like Google classroom so you can assign things to your students once they enroll.
Reading selections include history, science and literature based topics and an option for Guided reading can be enabled for the whole class or just selected students. The site provides comprehension questions with each passage to help ensure student understanding. You can search by lexile level, theme, genre or by standards.
Once your students complete a lesson you will see data about their progress!
