An understanding of current events is essential for students of all ages. As you work to bring news stories to life for elementary school students you’ll want to check out News-O-Matic. I shared this tool and it’s bilingual content earlier this year (News-O-Matic). This tool puts easily it puts high-quality, kid-friendly content in the hands of students.
Children need to understand how to navigate informational text. Learning new vocabulary words in context, and exploring real life stories from around the world are all part of that process. News-O-Matic gives kids access to five brand new current events articles each weekday. Kids can open it up on their iPad, Chromebook or web-browser, to read and answer comprehension questions from just about anywhere.
