Getting Out of the Book

My students need 22 Time for Kids news magazines to read about current world events. These news magazines will put today's top news stories right in my students hands.

My Students

The world can often seem overwhelming and even sometimes scary to today's youth. I want to provide my class of high-poverty students a positive and fact-based resource of the news in our world today.

I teach a very curious and thoughtful class of third graders in a high needs community.

My class consist of mixed ability learners. Many of whom are achieving below grade level. While others are high achieving students. Often as I am teaching my students they will question the information from our textbooks and want to discuss topics further. My students are at the age of demanding accuracy of the information which they are told, read about, hear from others, or even experience. Not only do they often ask "Why?", but they also want to know if the information is "Really True?". Time for Kids News Magazines will be effective resources to use during our discussions and for independent student research.

My Project

I would like to provide them with a current, accurate, and age-appropriate resource of news and other high interest topic selections. A subscription to Time for Kids news magazines will enable them to better understand the world we live in today. In addition the ability to read and interact with nonfiction text is directly aligned with our Common Core standards in third grade. These news magazines will improve my students reading comprehension skills and make the students more eager to read nonfiction information.

Your donation to my class will make it possible for all of my students to "get out of the book" and become more actively engaged in learning about their world.

It will also serve as a means of answering the students "burning" questions about real life news and current events.
