My students are eager to come to school and excited to learn!
My fourth grade, dual language class consists of 27 diverse learners.
Our Title I campus is made up of over six hundred students. I teach in a community of students from low-income families. Many of our students receive free or reduced price lunch. Additionally, thirty-six percent of our population is identified as English Language Learners. Have you ever felt lost because you don't speak or understand the English language? My students face this challenge every day. Despite their many hardships, my students enter the building each day with a smile on their faces. I want my students to continue to smile!
A quality literacy program requires rigorous and engaging texts for students to read. Scholastic News provides kid friendly current events into the class while building reading skills and content knowledge. They provide on level non-fiction articles with ready to go lesson plans and an online resource to help build comprehension and vocabulary.
Every issue reinforces language arts concepts which students have difficulty learning.
Scholastic News provides a wide variety of visual texts such as maps, graphs, charts, etc. that are essential pieces to the success of English Language Learners. The nonfiction text are not only on grade level, they are also short and support comprehension skills. By having students learn through real world events, it is my belief we will also be teaching them how to be leaders in our communities. Access to these quality resources will motivate and inspire my students to become lifelong readers, thinkers, and learners.
