Helping Second Grade Readers Soar!

My students need 30 Scholastic news to develop their non-fiction reading skills on real-life and current topics.

My Students

Do you anxiously look forward to finding your copy of Time or Sports Illustrated in the mail? My students would love the same opportunity!

My class is a diverse group of learners at a Title One school in Georgia.

Many of my students are English Language Learners, and they are curious and inquisitive! Many of them come from homes where there are no magazines or other reading materials, so they struggle with reading and understanding non-fiction articles.

My Project

Having a set of Scholastic News in our classroom would give my students the opportunity to broaden their horizons to reach the whole world. Scholastic News is filled with articles that cover both current events and places in the world my students may not be as familiar with. In addition, some Scholastic News articles are actually written by other students, giving my students the chance to read another child's perspective about the world. Each issue covers a variety of Common Core standards that will help my students become better readers and thinkers.

Having Scholastic News in my classroom will mean that my students will have the opportunity to read exciting articles every week about topics that concern them.

It will be a wonderful chance for them to feel like they are grown up readers.
