“I love the fact that
News-O-Matic encourages kids to engage in current events. Reading age-appropriate news will increase civic engagement levels. The discussions and the self reflection will help the next generation become better thinkers and global citizens.”
As a special educator, I am constantly looking for sites that will meet the diverse needs of my students as well as the entire school. THIS IS THAT SITE!
This is finally a website where I can differentiate for my students while still giving them age-appropriate visuals.
Special Education Teacher
The stories spark discussion and have an element of "fun".
Unlike video-only news for kids, News-O-Matic encourages the process of reading and reflection (and sharing) with families or peers.
It is very easy to use and students love the variety of different topics they can explore!
