This will be my first year at a new school, but I was able to meet my students during the move-up celebration. We did a community circle and I can see and feel how sweet they are. Meeting with their current teacher, I learned that this group of students need a lot of love and attention. It is a high-needs group, ranging from social to academic needs.
My classroom may be the most stable place in their lives.
I would love to give them a safe learning space where they all feel included and special.
After the move-up celebration, one student walked up to me and gave me a hug and said, "I am so happy you are going to be my teacher."
Scholastic News does an awesome job at providing weekly newsletters that are both fun and engaging. With the extra resources that come with the subscription, I am able to plan out how I can incorporate it into my lessons. There is a teacher's guide, videos, a skills game, and additional printables that is all accessible.
I feel that these newsletters will spark curiosity and help my students develop a love for reading.
Reading current events through Scholastic News helps to build language and increase content-area knowledge while making it exciting and interesting.
By incorporating these newsletters in my classroom, I know that my students will look forward to it each week!
