Webinar: Getting Started with CommonLit Digital

Here there is a great site for reading to help your students: CommonLit that is a completely free literacy resource design for 3rd – 12th grade classrooms.  The resource is accessible on any internet-enabled device , questions, and tools for helping students improve their ELA skills.  Overall, CommonLit offers a wealth of possibilities for the classroom. 

It offers a growing collection of literacy resources include nonfiction documents, historical texts, poems, news articles,   and all of them  have some assessment tools and are aligned to CCSS.

This website is very helpful for educators looking to select texts for lesson plans. The site allows you to choose appropriate texts for your students. So that, you can choose:  a theme, discussion question, and grade level-band. CommonLit also includes text-dependent and discussion questions, vocabulary definitions, paired texts, and teacher guides.

The library  contains over 1100 readings, and it is continuosly expanding.  You can filter your search by grade level, theme, genre, related books, device (e.g. hyperbole, irony, etc.), and standard.  Additionally, each reading is characterized by type (e.g. alliteration, assonance etc.)

As a teacher,if you sign in you can have your own dashboard where you can see all the assignments your student’s progress (organized by class),  and you can also add a new assignment to send out to your students.

In addition, you can download the pdf and your students can read at the same time they can listen to the audio.

One more interesting thing is the dictionary . Just only you or your student select the word from the text with the mouse. Then, click the button with the open book icon to look the word up.

With CommonLit the students can also highlight, and translate features.  All of these are great for helping students with different needs.

HOME SCHOOL SHARE

lapbooks homeschoolshare1A great page totally recomendable: Homeschool Share (HSS) is a on-line cooperative effort of several homeschooling moms to provide free but quality literature-based unit studies and resources. Here, you can  find lots and lots of useful resources, ideas and lesson plans for different ages and levels.


Are you looking for resources in order to exploit some books or stories with your children? If so, this is the right  page. Have a look  and don’t miss it.

Personally, I love “lapbooks” ideas and how they  work. They are mainly based in different story books.

Here I leave the different sections of this wonderful page in order you can  go there directly.

LEVEL ONE For ages 2-4 it’s  a perfect introduction to literature-based unit studies .

level1

LEVEL TWO  For ages 4-6 These units have more structure to the lessons.

level2

LEVEL THREE For ages 6-8 the books are more complex than Level 2 and usually have more text.

level3

LEVEL FOUR For ages 7-9 the books tackle more complex lessons on topics such as geology, astronomy, etc.

level4

LEVEL FIVE For ages 7-12 The lessons involve more writing as well as require the student to research various topics. 

level5

LEVEL SIX They are designed to challenge the student to analyze, research, and think critically, while helping the student toward greater independence in their academics.

level6

ANIMAL STUDIES These units can be used with a variety of ages. They are not based on living books, so it is recommended if your student ares interested in.

MULTI BOOK THEME These units revolve around one theme and are dependent on a variety of books to enhance learning.  They allow a more in-depth study of one particular topic.
