An amazing source of reading for students
I’m quite convinced with having this app on my mobile! The most distinctive feature that distinguishes this app from the other apps related to the same field is that readers can adjust the articles with their language levels and understand the contents better, also, improve their reading skill with a higher level! Taking quizzes is also another helpful feature that allow you to assess your comprehensive skill. Keep going guys with progressing this app through this technological age. I appreciate your wonderful work.
Great App, Small Problems
I love this app. It’s a great app for kids to use to read the news. You can take quizzes and answer written questions. I only have one problem, every once in a while I will open the app and it says “Oops, We hit a snag! Please sign in again!” then the app freezes. I exit the app and go back in. I click sign in and then click Google. I sign in with my account and it starts to load. Then it glitches out and goes back to the sign in and sign up page. I have to re download the app and sign in. Otherwise, it’s a great app! 😀
Excellent resource for teachers!!
Newsela is a terrific resource for teachers who need to create a fair playing field for all learners. Using the variety of incredibly fascinating and contemporary leveled readers, teachers can differentiate instruction to meet the reading needs of all students. The text features lead students to believe they are all reading the same material...thanks for being so sensitive to the students' needs!!!!
