Just a reminder that the State Library of Kansas purchases online resources for us to use. Several of these resources are geared towards kids and are available for kids to use at school and at home.
2nd and 3rd grade will be learning about Searchasaurus and TumbleBooks in Library during the month of February.
Here is how to access these resources. We also have a link to Searchasaurus and TumbleBooks on the library homepage under Library.
In particular, TumbleBooks is a source for Spanish Language Materials.
All digital resources we like for elementary age kids are linked on this page: http://kslib.info/kids
If you would like a State Kansas Library Card so you can check out ebooks for yourself contact me and I can set you up. You will need to send me your middle initial and birthday. Kids do not need a log in to use their resources.

Newsela is a Current Event website for Teachers featuring differentiated articles. Yes, that means one article that is available in at least 5 different lexile levels. The website is free, includes common core standards, AND comprehension quizzes. Honestly, one of the most perfect sites I've seen in awhile.
Did I mention that it is ad-free? And looks modern and sleek? Yes, I might be in love.
Shout out to Carmen Z. for the heads-up!
