Build the Knowledge and Skills Your Students Need Most 


Our Skills Sheets and Quizzes feature activities to support core ELA skills—the ones that will best aid your students in reading comprehension and vocabulary. Create a personalized package to fit your own scope and sequence (see STANDARDS for more).


Pause and Think questions embedded in our nonfiction stories are quick comprehension checks to ensure that students read carefully and understand the basic meaning of the text.


Think and Read boxes set a purpose for reading and prompt students to focus on one key reading skill per story. These connect to our Think and Write boxes at the end of each story, which ask students to respond to a question related to the skill focus.


In-Magazine Activities help students hone vocabulary, grammar, and paragraph-writing skills—and have fun while doing it.
