Great ELA Resources
Here are some great resources for finding reading material...especially informational text.

ReadWorks.org
ReadWorks provides non-fiction and literary reading passages for grades K-8.  You must register to read the passages, but registration is free.  It also gives you full access.  When you look for a reading selection, you can search by Lexile, grade level, or skill.


NewsELA.com
Register in order to have full access.  An anchor in the upper right corner of the article denotes which standard is covered in the quiz connected with that reading.  When you find an article that you would like to use, most articles allow you to adjust the Lexile with a sliding scale on the right side of the screen.
