Do You Know About ReadWorks?

Do you know about  It's one of those resources that I use often.  It's so fantastic that I just assume everyone else must know about it, too!  In case you don't, please do yourself a big favor and follow the link.  You'll be amazed at all of the COMPLETELY FREE K-12 reading passages (fiction and nonfiction) with related questions, standards-aligned units, and lesson plans.  There are even paired fiction and nonfiction passages. 

On the ReadWorks site, I found articles about health at different Lexile levels.  First, students read a passage at their level with a partner.  Then, we changed things up so that students partnered with a person who had read the other article. The partners reread both articles, then completed a VENN diagram comparing and contrasting the information from both articles.  It was easy to differentiate. 

ReadWorks has saved me a lot of time and money.  I strongly suggest that you check it out!
