Our students are amazing! Many were born into poverty, are immigrants or refugees from other countries, or are currently experiencing homelessness. Despite difficulties and hardships in their early and current lives, they come to school with smiles, eager, ready, and willing to learn and grow as part of our kindergarten community.
We often spend our own money on necessities for students like clothing, sneakers, snacks, and books.
This doesn't allow us to purchase supplemental materials for the classroom that the district doesn't provide but which can enhance the kindergartners' learning and understanding immensely.
My students love reading non fiction articles and texts to learn more facts about certain topics. Typically, I go online to find some text and display it on the projector or print it out for each student.
How cool would it be for each student to get his/her own Time magazine once a week!
It is the perfect way to teach text features as well as learn rad facts! Each student will be elated to learn they can keep each weekly magazine and bring it home to share with their families or refer back to and re-read over and over again once we have completed the classroom lessons pertaining to each issue.
What a fun way to add more exciting non fiction text into the kindergarten classroom!
