    websites for 5th grade reading students 

    Two of these sites offer virtual books to read. So, if you are looking for a new book to read, go to the Tumble Books or Teen Tumble sites! 


    Reading Activities While Home 

    This is the link for Scholastic articles. There are 20 free articles with questions and an activity to compete afterwards. Nothing needs to be printed, as students can read the article online and answer the questions/complete the activity on notebook paper. 

    Reading at home for 20 minutes a day and writing a short summary (they may use their notes during AR quizzes) can help keep students from regressing during this time off.
