Use the following resources to improve your searching effectiveness.
The following databases are designed for school children. For education majors, they are useful to help design age appropriate research assignments. All of them allow you to limit your search by reading level (Lexile level), making it possible for you to find the articles that best suit your reading skills. Articles with lower lexile ranges (200-750) will be easier to read. Those with higher lexile ranges (850+) are suitable for readers with more advanced skills.
