We understand that every classroom is full of readers at varying levels. Here are some ways you can use our online materials to differentiate for all the readers in your classroom:

Starting in February, we provide a version of each issue that is written at a lower Lexile level than the printed issue. Here’s how to find it:

• Go to the issue page and click on “Listen and Read.”
• Then select “Easier Level,” and you’ll be taken to the digital issue. It has all the features of the on-level issue, including the vocabulary slideshow and the interactive page 4 activity.

Audio Read-Aloud

Striving readers can get a comprehension boost from our audio read-aloud feature. Each issue is read by a real person (not a computer voice!), with words highlighted as they are read aloud. This feature is great for modeling fluent reading. The lower-Lexile level version of the issue also has the audio read-aloud feature.
