Mrs. D. from Kailua HI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

If It's Not on SnapChat, I Don't Know About It

My Students

When my students walk in every day, I don't see them as children. I see them as the future. They will lead us one day as I try to lead them now.

I teach at a Title I school in Kailua, Hawaii.

This means we are a school where a high percentage of our students receive free or reduced lunch. But, we don't let that stop us. My 6th-grade class is amazing and can do anything!

My class loves to learn and uses every opportunity to do it. Many students stay in during recess and after school to learn more about everything and anything. Their passion for learning cannot be extinguished!

My Project

Technology is one of our greatest assets, but it also can be our greatest enemy. When discussing current events or news, I often get the response, "I don't watch the news," or, "If it's not on SnapChat, I don't know about it."

This seems to be the norm for this generation of students, but I want to change that.

Scholastic News publishes a magazine that covers current events that is simple and easy to understand. The bi-weekly issues will engage my students and give them a chance to realize that they are part of the world around them.

Scholastic News also helps me to build upon science skills and social studies curriculum. The students will practice research and writing skills based on articles they read in their current issues. This gives us a chance to discuss and collaborate on real news.
