My Students

This year I will be teaching 2nd grade at a Title I school where I have taught for over 16 years, but due to current events it will be extremely different from previous years! Our school community is preparing for a new way of teaching called distant learning.

My Project

Reading this school year is very different due to remote distance learning. School curriculum that can be sent home to students is limited so using Scholastic News would be an excellent way for students to get engaging non-fiction reading that covers current events through social studies/science topics. A glossy magazine is often more engaging for young readers because it has lots of visual support and low pressure, short articles. The weekly magazine issues will help make a significant impact on my students' social and language skills. We will be able to have class discussions on nonfiction topics. Students will have access to online resources like videos and projects to extend learning and help make reading fun.
