I am lucky to spend my days with 24 energetic, enthusiastic and diverse learners. My hope is that throughout this year they have an increased curiosity and interest to learn more about the world around them. These magazines were truly enjoyed by my 2nd graders last year, and I am confident that my new class of 2nd graders will feel the same!
Our school is very unique.
We are the smallest school in a large district educating approximately 120 students. We have one class per grade level in our kindergarten through 4th grade building. Our students are not provided with bus services, therefore they come to and from school by cars, walking, or bikes. We have a very diverse group of students, which can be difficult as an educator.
I am extremely eager to utilize these amazing resources offered through Scholastic. Our current curriculum doesn't include much for Social Studies. The magazines offer the students an opportunity to read and learn about current events, history, geography, and social studies in an way that relates to them.
The Story Works magazine helps encourage an interest in writing.
Sometimes young learners have a difficult time with writing, but the content in Story Works is high interest to the young learners.This makes the writing process less intimidating to apprehensive writers. I plan to utilize both of these resources on a weekly basis.
