The Newsela Daily Deck! NEW From Our Friends at Newsela and Pear Deck!

There is something NEW from Newsela and Pear Deck that I can't wait to tell you about. 
It's called the Newsela Daily Deck and our students and teachers are loving it at Van Meter!

As the site states,
Newsela and Pear Deck are teaming up to create Daily Decks designed to spark student engagement!

Each one features an adaptive news article with interactive prompts to get EVERY student learning. These free, ready-to-teach Decks will help you explore news topics with your class while working on literacy, critical thinking skills, and building classroom community! 

Each article has been curated by Newsela’s expert team and paired with proven instructional strategies to help your students go deeper with the lessons and prompt classroom conversations. With new articles published every day, there’s never a limit to how much you can explore!
On the Pear Deck Newsela Daily Deck site, you can see all of the Daily Decks here.... 
It is easy to use the templates.  All you have to do is follow these 3 steps.  
1. Pick one of the Daily Decks
Then login to Newsela and assign the article to your class.  
I picked this Newsela article about the unicorn puppy with an extra tail on his head.  My daughter, Brianna, and I found this sweet puppy so interesting and adorable. 
 2.  Next, open the Daily Deck and launch your Pear Deck Session.
 3. Students will then read...
 ...and annotate the article,
discuss and...
Our students can't wait to see what Newsela Daily Deck is next!
