choositoDid you ever just wish you could search the web to locate information that was written on the reading level of your students? Well, wish no more. Meet Choosito!, a teacher and kid-friendly search engine that offers a reading level index for its results. When users conduct an internet search on Choosito!, they can filter returns in one of the following categories: Early Readers, Emerging Readers, Fluent Readers or Advanced Readers.
