Classbloom Reading includes activities for grades 1-8 that inspire a love for reading and build reading stamina. Advance reading, writing, critical thinking and listening skills with informational and literary passages designed to help students reach higher levels of reading achievement.
Help students develop a deep comprehension of even the most challenging texts. Classbloom Reading includes Lexile-leveled, complex literary passages that cover a variety of genres, including: folktales, fables, myths, poetry, historical fiction and fantasy. Over 60% of the passages are informational, covering: history, social studies, science and technical topics.
Sharpen students' critical thinking skills with text-dependent and constructed response questions requiring students to analyze and find evidence in the text.
Save time searching for paired passages! We've includes those, too. Foster students' ability to compare and contrast themes, topics, and genres.
Each activity has built-in support resources including Lexile and Flesch-Kincaid reading levels, source listings and links for each passage, distractor rationales for incorrect answers and sample responses for open-ended questions.
Interactive tools will bring reading passages to life for your students. View their notes and highlights in the passages. Gain insight into critical thinking skills as they annotate. Help younger students build communication skills with the ability to record responses to open-ended questions and attach drawings and images, in addition to typing responses.
With our high achieving students, I have seen the impact of Classworks in Math. When we are problem-solving, some of those students are able to use higher-level strategies because of the exposure from Classworks. In Reading, some of our stragglers are getting a refresher on reading foundation skills that are no longer taught in the 4th-grade curriculum. I look forward to seeing their growth this year!
Classworks is the one intervention that was a non-negotiable and was truly implemented with fidelity from 1st grade to 5th grade. The teachers at Northside Elementary really like the program and the fact that is directly correlated to STAR which ultimately helps to improve their results for each of their student learning objectives regardless of where they are based on grade level!
Classroom centers are a powerful way to transform traditional whole-group learning into an interactive, differentiated, learning experience. That being said, even the most confident teachers can feel intimidated by the thought of handing students the reigns while they sit back and observe from their kidney-shaped tables.
