My Students

I want my students to go far in life! Everyone knows "The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." - Dr. Seuss

Crime, drugs, poverty, unstable home lives, etc.

are all commonplace in my low-income school district. These are tough issues to overcome, but every morning, my 5th graders bound into the classroom full of stories and eager to learn. They are excited to come to school and really want to be here! I feel the same!

My Project

We will use "Time for Kids" weekly during our Social Studies class. Without realizing it, students will be practicing and perfecting their non-fiction reading skills! I will have my students use the magazines as sources for writing current events reports and doing exciting projects such as "live" news broadcasts in the classroom. Students will learn that there's much more to the world around them than their immediate community.

Many of my students struggle with mastering the basic skills necessary for academic success.

Comprehending nonfiction is a huge sticking point. "Time for Kids" is a weekly news magazine full of interesting, short, colorful, non-fiction articles that will keep their attention and motivate them to want to read more - unlike a textbook. Getting them to practice reading and comprehending non-fiction with this medium will be easier. The more practice they get, the better readers they will become.
