News for Kids: (from Common Sense Media)
Youngzine Parents need to know that Youngzine isn't only a current events magazine for young people -- it's a supportive, interactive learning community. Adult moderators show up all over the place, from registration to original summary articles to responses to comments and achievements. Some kids do use their full names or ages, but their locations aren't revealed. It's a gentle news source for kids and tweens who want to keep up on issues and maybe throw their own opinions into the ring.
NewsELA Parents need to know that Newsela is a website that offers kids the chance to read about current events at the level they're comfortable with. When kids sign up, they'll need to click on an email-verification link to get started. Once registered, you'll receive a start-up code that family members can use to log in. Kids will need to register separately with their own usernames and passwords, enter the code, and view articles you've selected.
