My Kindergarten classroom is a place of discovery and magic. My students come to school to gain the foundational skills of reading, writing, and mathematics, as well as to learn to be great thinkers, wonderers, and problem solvers.
My students come from a low-income area on the South-West side of Chicago.
My school is 97% English Language Learners. More than 90% of my school's population qualifies for free and reduced lunch. My students face many challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite these challenges, my students come to school each day eager to learn and give their best effort.
Kindergarteners need non-fiction magazines to learn science and social studies content through age-appropriate readers! The Scholastic Magazines provide science and social studies standards in fun, interactive magazines and online activities.
These magazines are written at a Kindergarten level, which helps my students to become independent readers.
Students will have weekly and monthly themes. Online resources through the magazines will allow the students to further investigate these topics.
Currently, my school does not have a science nor a social studies curriculum. These magazines will help me create curriculums and ensure my students are learning College Readiness Standards. Additionally, the Scholastic Magazines offer a new medium of text that many of our students never get to experience!
