I've been receiving quite a few requests for more information on logging into business sweet words, this post is to introduce how to go from my website and log in to your child's, to digital reworks account from home.
The resource I'd like to share with you is read works org, read works org is basically a collection of reading comprehension PDFs. Let me go ahead and share with you a few of the ways that I utilize read works.
Reading passage search function is a great tool
Once again free registration, I actually have not set up a Hayward account, but I'm still piggybacking off my Campbell account. I'd like to go ahead and share with you a few of the ways that I like to use it. If you have kids in your class that has a variety of reading levels which we all do, I think using the reading passage search function is a great tool, you'll see that you can just browse from the endless amount of articles and selections in alphabetical order. If you need a specific article or topic then you can type it in the keyword, and then also change the grade level as well.
That'll limit the number of articles that you'll be able to print or see, but sometimes, for example, if I'm looking for a specific article, for example like Yellowstone National Park, I may just type in Yellowstone, you're going to see a few different articles where the word Yellowstone will appear, then you can see here are the grade levels.
The print article is pdf
If I were to just click on return of the bear it looks like it's an expository and informational text which it is, you would then click on the article or print it out, and it will be a PDF sometimes, I just want to caution you sometimes there are two separate PDFs, because you can see the question set isn't here, so if I close this out or go back hopefully I can now go back, and why can't I go back? All right, I'm back, you'll see that there may be a question set as well, questions that call them for the little delay, so you may need to print out two different PDFs.
Another little cool feature is the paired reading passages. What you'll see is that these passages are an expository and a narrative genre of the text, so you can see this looks like it's an expository text expository article, if we go to the paired text you probably see a narrative. There you go, and kind of cool way to teach the younger kids a difference, the difference between expository and narrative, and all the different text features that are part of an expository text.
Feel free to use word work, read works, it's a great way to differentiate instruction, you can do a small guided reading based on the kids reading assessments and get the material that is at their own level.
