My Students

My students love to read children classic books, such as I Want My Hat Back and This is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen. I teach at a K-8 school, located in a low socioeconomic neighborhood. Most of my students have limited resources and don't have access to adequate amount of books on their independent reading level at home.

My students are a group of great kids who are fun to be with, quick-witted, humorous, and best of all, they have a positive attitude about learning.

My students love to read books of all different genres. They love to go to literacy and math centers.

My Project

My students love to learn about nonfiction topics. However, the social studies curriculum books that are in school are really old, boring, and outdated. Teaching from this kind of curriculum materials makes me so sad because students are not receiving the most up to date text. Also, there is no science curriculum books so I need to search for items myself.

Students will love the Scholastics News Magazine because it offers interesting, nonfiction topics that are fun to read.

I believe that the Scholastics News Magazine will offer my students a chance to read real, nonfiction text while learning social studies and science standards.
