Reading & writing resources
Keep kids engaged in their reading and writing, and track how they’re progressing using online tools.
Quick, free reading comprehension exercises. Students begin by taking a quiz (a few sample texts with questions) which automatically puts them into a reading level. Students then read fiction and non-fiction texts and answer comprehension questions about the texts. It tracks the progress of the entire class and gives you feedback on student reading progress.
Elevenses with The World of David Williams
David Walliams is doing an audio story a day for the month of April. Every day you and your class can listen together to one of Walliams’ World’s Worst Children stories. Sit down, take a break together, and enjoy 20ish minutes of pure fun!
Pobble365 has a new writing prompt (image) every day! This is great for creative writing but can also help with writing features. Scroll down the page and you’ll find Sentence Challenges, questions, additional writing prompts (to support our less motivated writers), and even story starters. Combine this with a ‘focus’ for writing (e.g. punctuation) so that students aren’t just writing for the sake of it.
