Workshop Wednesday: DoGo News

Quick post tonight to link up with one of my best blogging buddies, Jivey, for her Workshop Wednesday. This week it's all about sharing websites for reading!

 


The website I am sharing was shared with me by one of the fifth grade staff members: DOGO News

http://www.dogonews.com/

DOGO News is updated frequently with news stories that are kid friendly. The site is set up so that students can also comment and interact with articles if you so choose. If an account is created {FREE!}, as a teacher you can create lesson plans using articles, create reading lists, and invite your students.

I like to pull in articles from this website to pair with other texts we are using in the classroom. The students enjoy the format and I like the wide variety of informational texts that can be utilized. Articles have also been used to spark conversations and debates. This website {all free!} is truly worth a look!

What websites are you using for reading? Be sure to check out all of the wonderful links, and link up your favorite websites too!
