My Students

I teach in a very a low socioeconomic area, where more than 98% of the students receive free or reduced lunch and 70% of the students are ELLs. My classroom is an inclusion classroom with a mixture of students with special needs and students who are ELLs (English Language Learners.)

I have a classroom of 4th grade learners who love learning.

For many of these students, their first, and sometimes only, exposure to reading and learning happens in our classrooms. They can enjoy and embrace the love for learning in a safe, and comfortable environment.

My Project

Common Core has brought a new level of rigor to the classroom and to student learning. As we begin to implement this new curriculum, resources that used to work are no longer challenging enough. Day in, day out, the students are given boring, black and white, copied, passages to expose them to the rigor we are asking them to perform to. My students often struggle to see the illustrations, and looking at the same format has become stale to even the teachers. Students need access to Common Core aligned texts that are fun and engaging. These TIME magazines will do that! They are full of colorful pages, easy to follow text features, engaging topics, and will expose students to real life news and events. My class has had a subscription to TIME magazines for the last three years, and they loved them!

Every one of my students looked forward to when it was time for TIME.

We learned and talked about so many different subjects and topics over the year. My students were aware of many of the current events. Even my struggling readers and students that showed little interest in reading would come alive and show true enjoyment when we read and learned from our TIME.

I added the digital component this year, and my students love going online, watching aligned videos, taking polls, and yes, event taking the quizzes.

TIME for Kids has changed how I teach and how my students learn.
