In the News

My students need Scholastic magazines to inform them about current events and science news.

My Students

My students are excited about learning and are often shocked at current events or new advantages in technology.

I teach second - fifth grade intellectually gifted students in a rural, agricultural community.

Most of my students don't travel often outside of a 50-mile radius of our community; therefore, they don't have a lot of experiences outside of school. Our school is a Title I school with 75% of our student body receiving free or reduced-price meals. Our student body consists of about 45% Hispanic, 40% Caucasian, and 10% African American. Most ELL students only speak Spanish at home since their parents speak only Spanish.

My Project

These current events and science magazines will help my students stay informed with important news and discoveries. With the push for more science and technology in classrooms, these resources will enable my students to gain more knowledge about the field to science and technology as well as learn about the changing world around them. Not only will students share their learning with their parents, they will also share it with the student body. Each morning, my students will "broadcast" their own "In the News" segment on the intercom during our school's morning meeting. Through this segment, students will write and present an informative segment with additional researched information on their topic. They will pose questions to the students, and students will be invited to post questions for my students in an interactive "IN THE NEWS" bulletin board by the office, which my students will update.

Since these magazines are consumable, students will be able to take these resources home and share with their families.

Many of my ELL students don't have reading materials at home and their parents speak only Spanish. They can share these materials with their families and not only be informed students but help their families become informed as well. My wish is that my students become well-informed citizens, so they are able to think on their own and become future problem solvers.
