News-O-Matic for Kid-Friendly Current Events

NOM_HD_iconSharing current events with students is so important but it is often challenging to find appropriate content for elementary schoolers.  News-O-Matic is a daily newspaper for kids available on both iOS and Android devices (the app will soon be available on the Amazon Kindle Fire tablets).  It provides engaging nonfiction text for  young readers to help them learn about the world around them.  With topics including election news, sports coverage and science discoveries, there is plenty of exciting content to capture the attention of your students.unknown

Their new update (coming soon!) will be specifically designed for use in schools.  It will include custom reading levels for individual students, built-in assessments that are customizable, and analytics including quiz scores, reading levels and time spent reading.  News-O-Matic will be able to support differentiated instruction while giving students access to high-interest, informational text.
