My students need these high-interest theme-based issues of "Time for Kids" to get them excited about reading and learn early non-fiction literacy skills.

My Students

Everything I Need to Know, I Learned in Kindergarten. You may have heard that title before, but in many ways it holds true. My kindergartners are sponges. They learn through experiences. They see the world for what it is and come to school each day with bright eyes, eager to soak up more knowledge.

My students deserve the latest and greatest resources; they are the future.

Our school is located in rural Minnesota. We are a Title I school and have a high percentage of free and reduced lunch population. Many of our students qualify for free and reduced lunches and receive a backpack sent home on Fridays to keep them nourished during the weekend. Many families also receive special "baskets" at Thanksgiving and Christmas. These baskets provide food and much needed supplies that many of our families can't afford.

My students are hard workers and love learning. They deserve so much that I alone cannot provide them. My students are "my kids." I have a special place in my heart for all of my students, past, present and my future kinders.

My Project

This subscription to Time for Kids will allow each of my students to interact with their own paper copy while following along with the digital copy that also comes with the subscription. Currently our classroom shares copies of the magazines between 3 classrooms which doesn't allow the students to interact and write on their copies. My students love to get their hands on these magazines and discuss the detailed real-life pictures. They are always disappointed when we need to give them to a different classroom so they can use them. I would love for my students to have their own copy to take home and share with their families.
