Today I am linking up with The Teaching Trio for their Technology Thursday linky!
Have you heard of Newsela? My students and I love this site! This site is full of kid friendly news articles! It has the most current world happenings and you can even choose the grade level you want the article displayed! We start each morning with a current event and the students usually beg for more! The site also allows you to give each student their own account. This is great because a lot of the articles have interactive quizzes that the students can complete once they are done reading. On the teacher account you can track the articles the students have read and the quizzes they have taken. Oh and did I mention that it is FREE?! Check out a few snapshots from the site:
