Every day you celebrate the small wins.

A hand raised from the back of the class. Homework turned in on time. A smile and a nod from the shy student who rarely speaks up. 

At Newsela, we celebrate with you.

That lesson that brought the class together. The after school chat that made all the difference. The Zoom tricks you learned to make virtual learning as engaging as possible.

We’re here to help teachers win with meaningful, classroom-ready content, and prizes to celebrate the incredible perseverance you've shown this back-to-school season. That’s what we call a “win-win!” #winningwithnewsela
