My Students

I have a classroom of 25 eager and energetic kindergarten students! Our school serves a diverse population of students, which means students have a wide variety of background experience. For some students, I am their first school experience while other students have had access to preschool programs before coming to my classroom. Some students are reading brief sentences while other students are still learning to write their name. Each year, the background knowledge my students have when they enter my room affects what and how they learn.

It is my job to challenge my students to grow academically while providing developmentally appropriate activities for them to learn from and explore.

I strive to introduce vocabulary, topics, and activities that will broaden their knowledge base as well as provide opportunities for them to explore and learn independently.

My Project

I am requesting a class set of Scholastic "Let's Find Out" magazines. This resource provides eight months of magazines, containing four magazines for each month, for a total of 32 issues per student. I have requested 32 subscriptions since we do not know exactly how many students we will have. These magazines are a wonderful way to introduce my students to non-fiction texts, enrich their vocabulary, and expose them to text features all while learning content that is grade level appropriate. An added bonus is that this subscription comes with online access to additional content such as videos and games for each issue related to the topic we are reading about as well as an online version of the student magazine!

Exposing my students to text features and non-fiction text will enhance their background knowledge and help engage them in content.

This is important for building vocabulary for all students, especially those who are learning English as a second language or who did not have a literacy rich home environment. The issues are primarily science and social studies based, but often include issues on authors/books, health, and building social skills.

My class LOVES working with this resource. Instead of finding them balled up in the trash, my students were proud to put them in their reading baskets (to read later on their own) or immediately put them in their cubbies after our lesson to share with their families. Additional issues are requested to allow for new students to receive a magazine and any extra issues are laminated and placed in our classroom library for students to explore year after year. Thank you for your support!
