This year I will be teaching between 25-30 5th graders in a “new to me” classroom. 5th graders are always so excited to begin a new school year. I look forward to beginning a new year with a tool that will enhance the reading program we use. Students will self-select a just right level magazine to support their non-fiction reading, which will in turn, help increase their reading. Students will be able to take their magazine home and reread with family.
Students enjoy reading many types of novels. A lot of times, they don’t have the opportunity to purchase a magazine that features current events. My 5th graders will enjoy reading current non-fiction by reading Time Life for Kids. Reading different genres on their just right level will help increase reading levels. It will be great for students to have magazines to read along with their self-selected novels. Students will be able to discuss and/or write about current events by using Time Life for Kids. Students will also be given the opportunity to take these magazines home and share with family members.
