Fall Reading Clubs

Teachers can use Fall Reading Clubs to encourage reading during holiday breaks or class time in November. You can share this handout with students or parents. Students can join clubs now or at any time in November. Students will receive five article assignments when they join, along with instructions to annotate the articles and find additional related articles for independent reading.

All students can join Fall Reading Clubs by going to the Club Link OR by entering the Club Code on their “Account” page (students access their “Account” page by logging into Newsela and clicking their name in the upper right corner).
