Just Read Extension


Today’s tip is the Chrome extension, Just Read.  Often times articles, websites, and blogs will have excessive amounts of advertisements, comments, and other unrelated text.  This can be very distracting to the reader.  With one click, Just Read removes the excess text so just the article (and pertinent images) appear on the page.  You can use this tool for articles you display whole class or each student can have ease of reading at their fingertips.  You can also change the background color or size of the text for any students with visual challenges.

As you can see the excess text, comments and advertisements are removed once you click on the Just Read extension at the top right of your screen.




This extension has been pushed out to all 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. But you can also add it to your Google Account from the Chrome Web Store.
