My Students

I teach at Title One school with a large English Language Learners population. Many of my students come from difficult situations. This can mean they do not have a winter coat, there is no food at home, they struggle with English, and many other difficulties. Despite their struggles, they are resilient and compassionate students. They all have one thing in common, a curiosity about the world around them. As 5th graders, this curiosity makes them question their world and want to connect to it. I love being able to facilitate discussions with my students driven by their questions and that natural curiosity. I strive to foster this curiosity through authentic learning experiences with real world connections.

My Project

My students need more exposure and practice reading non-fiction articles. Scholastic News provides articles that students can relate to and enjoy reading. Students will be able to improve their understanding of informational text and read about current events with these magazines. The high interest of Scholastic News helps students develop a love of non-fiction, even for hesitant and struggling readers. The online resources that come with the subscription also allow me to provide additional support to my ESL and below grade level readers. It also provides extensions to challenge high students. With built in differentiation and material the students relate to, these magazines will help all students succeed.
