Click here to download a Summer Reading Club handout for students.

Students who join Newsela Summer Reading Clubs will receive ten assigned articles about the club topic. The twelve summer 2017 club topics include Youth Activism, Sports, History, and more.

How to Use Program 4: Digital Summer Reading Clubs

  1. Make sure that all students have Newsela accounts. Students who do not yet have Newsela accounts can register by going to Newsela.com and clicking “Join” (students under 13 will need the assistance of a parent or teacher).
  2. Students can sign up for Reading Clubs now or at any time during the summer by going to the Club Link or entering the Club Code on their Classes page. You can find all Club Links below, and more information here. Students can join more than one club.
  3. When students join the club, they will receive ten articles on the club topic in their Newsela accounts.
  4. At the end of the summer, teachers and administrators will see student completion of club reading in the PRO Binder.
  5. To share this information with students and parents, add this explanation to your summer reading letter or information page (modify as needed--you may want to ask students to join more than one club):

For summer reading, our school is using Newsela.com, an online reading platform with high-interest nonfiction articles at multiple reading levels. Newsela can be accessed on an internet browser or by downloading the Newsela app from iTunes or from the Google Play store (if students have limited internet access, they can read offline with those apps). Students who do not already have Newsela accounts can sign up by going to Newsela.com and clicking “Join” (students under 13 will need the assistance of a parent or teacher).

Students should join one of the following reading clubs by going to the Club Link or entering the Club Code on their settings page. They will then see 10 assigned articles, and should read all of them before the first day of school.
