TrueFLIX ebooks, 3-6
TrueFLIX includes nonfiction ebooks targeted to readers in grades 3-6. They are interactive and help students understand how to read nonfiction text. While targeted to elementary students, some students in higher grades could benefit from this high-interest, low-level, multi-sensory nonfiction information:
-ELL students struggling with English
-secondary students functioning at a reading level below 5th grade
-ADHD students who need multi-sensory resources to maintain focus
and, of course, those second graders who are reading above grade level will also benefit. Elementary teachers will be encouraged to share the username/password with parents for home access. TrueFlix is continuing to add new titles and additional vetted content (almost doubled the number of titles in two years).
