How to encourage student reading on Newsela this summer: Summer Reading Clubs, independent reading, and more.

Students and teachers can continue reading on Newsela all summer long! On this page, we’ve outlined some strategies to make summer reading better for every teacher and student.

  • If your students don’t have Newsela accounts yet, invite them to join your class now by following these steps. After students join your class, they can keep logging in the same way all summer and forever!
  • If you want your students to join Summer Reading Clubs, share these instructions with them. Students can pick from 12 club topics, and they will receive 10 assigned articles. PRO Teachers can view club progress for all students in their classes!
  • If your students will be reading on mobile devices, have them download the Newsela app from iTunes or from the Google Play store (if students have limited internet access, they can read offline with those apps).
  • If you want to share information about summer reading with students and parents, use this message: For summer reading, our class is using Newsela.com, an online reading platform with 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).
  • If you want your incoming students to use Newsela over the summer, you can create a class for them now and share the Class Link with them. Then you can assign articles, have them join a Summer Reading Club, or have them choose their own articles.
  • If you are teaching summer school, you can use Newsela with those classes the same way you used it during the school year, by having your students join your classes by following these steps.
  • If you want to set up a Newsela Summer Reading Program for your whole school, check out our PRO school options here.
