My students need magazines such as TIME for Kids, Owl and Ranger Rick, with high-quality articles to spark a love of nonfiction and facts. These subscriptions will keep our classroom library dynamic and current!
In our class, the motto is "Question Everything." We believe that kids learn best when they pursue their own interests. Our classroom library reflects this belief. We have graphic novels, everything Star Wars, and a whole section on origami for our student who just can't get enough of paper-folding.
Our kids love it when we make learning fun.
That's why we do time-travel instead of social studies, write wacky fiction instead of dry reports, and are doing a year's worth of Roald Dahl read alouds. We teach a diverse class of 29 learners. Some of our students have IEPs for special learning needs. We have a handful of newcomers who are just learning English. And most of our students are English Language Learners.
My students need magazines such as TIME for Kids, Owl and Ranger Rick, Our school is implementing a Guided Reading initiative. This means we do small-group reading instruction. Most schools do this through books designed for Guided Reading. Those books are boring! Instead, we plan to do Guided Reading with top-of-the-line kids' magazines. The kids won't know it's guided reading, they will just look forward to getting their news fix. Each child in our class will enjoy their own subscription to Time for Kids, and time in a small group to read exciting articles about the world around them. They will pick up reading skills while becoming experts on current events. At the end of the year, we do a study on newspapers and the media. What better way to prepare than to have a year's worth of news-reading experience under their belts?
Many of our students don't get the chance to explore outside their neighborhood.
With subscriptions to the best children's magazines, they will be exposed to the world around them. Who knows what exciting doors these magazines can open for them? They might learn about digging for mummies, swimming with whales, or kids who are making a difference in their communities. Whatever excites them. Our ever-replenishing "news stand" will become a new favorite part of the classroom library.Read More
