Watching the Winter Olympics this year will be a real eye opener for many of my students this year. We live in a small, rural community that does not get a lot of exposure to other cultures and countries. So I began to think - How can I bring some of the timely news issues safely into the classroom?
We are a small school district of around 2,490 students (Pre.
K-12) in the middle of fields of corn and beans. It is a close knit, conservative community that comes together and supports each other. We do not have a lot of money and have learned to do without the extras in life.
Help me provide an "extra" for my classroom next year. Time for Kids has age-appropriate, nonfiction writing and vivid images will help engage my students, while also supporting Common Core State Standards. The students will have a newspaper of their very own to read, build critical thinking skills and learn about the great big world.
I remember as a child receiving a monthly magazine from my teacher as a child.
I would read the pages, solve the puzzles or riddles and hang many of the brightly colored pictures on the wall of my bedroom.
