Critical Thinking using TIME For Kids

My students need TIME for Kids because these are all current events that are taking place today. TIME for Kids is written on grade level in a fun informative format helping students to enjoy reading.

My Students

My students fit into two categories: military families or economically disadvantaged. My students deal with so many issues today. Out of 17 students, 11 are connected to the military. At the time I am writing this, four of the families are serving outside the U.S., and four are economically disadvantaged. Because of this, I work very hard to provide them with a safe environment and always provide for those that can't.

Like most, my students love technology and love to work on them but they need hands-on items to help them transfer concepts.

This year, we are incorporating more programs than ever and we are learning to make powerpoints for reports. It's so amazing what they are able to do. I learn from them as much as they learn from me.

Our classroom is a community, and when you walk in you see children helping each other to achieve a goal. We celebrate all successes no matter how small. My students have a very keen sense of the emotional needs of each other. They know when a student needs more kindness because a parent is deployed or in the hospital because of their unique life experiences.

My Project

Students still need to hold magazines such as TIME for Kids Magazines in their hands. Nothing smells quite like the print on paper. However, TIME for Kids provides well written articles that deal with today's news around the world.

The articles in TIME for Kids Magazine bring the world to their classroom.

In the past I have noticed students want to learn more about the subjects they have read. These articles give students the opportunity to discuss and share their opinions on current news.

Students are then able to work collaboratively to further research and present their research using technology.
