Librarians recommend: CommonLit, a free collection of fiction and nonfiction for 5th-12th grade classrooms. A librarian from Tennessee, Ms. Fink, says, "Major publications such as NPR and Science News donate articles to CommonLit. The text are paired with additional texts, media to build background knowledge, and can be annotated."
