The month of August means back-to-school time. It also means that it’s time for Week 1 in our topical Scope & Sequence set, and it’s a popular one – Animals! Across all grades, animal passages are the most popular among ReadWorks students.
We have more than 1000 texts on or about animals within the ReadWorks library. The subjects of the texts range from a bird’s connection to life science to animals around the world. The texts were written for K-12 reading levels and include multiple Lexiles. Many were conceived by our expert content learning partner The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF).
NFWF is dedicated to sustaining, restoring and enhancing the nation’s fish, wildlife, plants and habitats for current and future generations. With guidance from ReadWorks on classroom and reading accessibility, NFWF tapped into the deep knowledge of their scientists to create original content for Article-A-Day learning routines.
