Reading Levels

Page history last edited by dawntush 10 years, 4 months ago

Here are some links for short complex text that the coaches are familiar with.  Also see Lynda Weaver's  links below.


The first link has K-6 passages, units and novel studies by genre for upper grades. The passages are lexile leveled. Great ideas for a supportive texts. 



https://www.readworks.org/books/passages - short passages by lexile level/grade level
This is more for higher level 2nd grade students on up. It is my understanding you can choose a text and level it differently for different student levels. News articles - current events + some quizzes/discussion questions.

Upper level

http://kellygallagher.org/resources/articles.html - article of the week on current events



http://commoncore.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans - Lesson Plans with links to articles, suggested books and links to primary documents.


http://www.kslib.info/librarians/eor.html - Link to the State Library Date base Resources. Middle Grades on the left - Lower grades on the right.

If you want to make sure the resources are for our age group, put in certain periodical names in the publication box (Cobblestone for Am. History, Calliope for World History, Dig for Archaeology, Faces for people and cultures, Odyssey for Science and Appleseeds for various subjects lower level). These are marked with Lexile levels. You can also put in any other periodicals you know of such as Time for Kids, Scholastic News, Weekly Reader, etc. These do not have Lexiles.


You should also have an online link and password to whatever periodical you have for your kids (check your teacher's guide) and can search back issues. However the Ebsco link above has those too and you don't need a log in.
