Extra Extra! Our Special Ed Class Needs Adapted Newspapers!
My students need an online subscription to an adapted news paper.
Our school is a therapeutic day school program the task of which is to provide emotional support and academic opportunities to children who have been unable to succeed in community school settings due to emotional, learning, and behavioral difficulties.
The majority of our students live at a residential children's home and are wards of the state.
Our school runs as a trauma-informed program, aiming to help our students grow from their pasts and learn how to cope in effective ways.
Despite the challenges that our students face, they are incredible children. Their resiliency, love for learning, and curiosity are truly inspiring. I strive to make my classroom a welcoming and safe community and to help my students explore learning and grow into independent and productive citizens.
My students love knowing about the world around them. They crave the feeling of fitting in! An adapted newspaper subscription would be an incredible way to help them access the world.
News-2-You is a weekly online newspaper that connects students with the world.
This symbol supported newspaper is published weekly from September through May. Each newspaper is already differentiated at a variety of levels to meet the wide variety of needs in my classroom. It also comes with extension activities to tie the news into listening, math, language arts, and more.
Social studies often gets "forgotten" in our new world of Common Core Learning. This subscription would allow my students to become better readers and thinkers. The first step in building tolerance is learning about the world around you.
