Increase Comprehension with these Great FREE Non-Fiction Sites

The following 4 websites are free and full of excellent non-fiction articles for kids/tween reading: wonderopolis, timeforkids, nationalgeographicforkids and kidshealth.

After reading an article, have the child complete a strategy called 3-2-1.  Write down 3 facts learned, 2 new vocabulary words (with definitions) and 1 comment or question about the article. This strategy helps with recall, retention, analysis, summarization and vocabulary acquisition.
