English Learner Resources
There are over 100 interactive activities here to help kids from preschool to grade 8 develop skills in English literacy. Not only that, but there’s a wide variety of books children can read directly on the website, such as “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.”
Even the arcade games allows children a chance to practice their reading in order to play games successfully. All the games are safe for kids, and they encourage children to manipulate the keyboard and mouse so they can learn to be independent on the computer.
All the materials on Breaking News English are based off news headlines and current events from around the world. Featuring 7 different reading levels for each news story, each lesson has up to 26 pages of activities and handouts to accompany each story. As an added bonus, users can complete online quizzes and download stories as mp3 files.
Featured resource: Speed Reading Activities. Choose from different news articles to help reading fluency.
Tip for home use: Have your child pick a story they’re interested in, or pick one for them based on their interests. Encourage your child to read by rewarding them with a corresponding game at the end.
