My bright readers walk into my room ready to learn and absorb all they can from our books and reading community. They are nearly all from low-income homes; for them access to resources you may have had growing up isn't always possible. That is what this project is about.
As readers, we're working to build an authentic love of reading.
We work on being matchmakers for ourselves and others; we know all we've got to do is find the right kind of book for us.
Given the right resources, the right environment, and the right amount of warm/strict, we are successful. We work hard and play hard to close the gap between our beginning of fifth grade reading level and end of year reading level. We usually advance at least a year and a half or more in nine months. We're intelligent, curious, brave and precocious young people who want to be successful readers.
My students will use the 2018/2019 subscription of Scholastic's Scope magizine to learn about current event and issues. They will have classroom debates on a variety of topics. The Scope will engage non-readers with high interest material and reinforce reading skills. Also, students will be able to self select from a variety of reading material.
The Scope Magazines will provide us with access to world and current topics of interest to students.
We need the nonfiction and current events to help our students not only learn to read this type of material but also to help make them more aware of what’s going on in their community and the world. With the subscription, Scholastic offers videos, teacher material and student material that align with our curriculum.
