Our children are identified as gifted students who are bussed in from surrounding schools who lack a gifted program. We are a Title I school and many of our students in this area fit the profile of high risk, low-income households. My goal is to create a peaceful and dynamic environment that creates leaders and sparks a lifelong quest for knowledge within them.
Curiosity, imagination, intelligence, and chutzpah runs rampant through our students and we love them for it.
From Kindergarten to fifth grade, the children we teach exhibit a spark in one of the multiple intelligences that we seek to fan into a flame. These students will be the future leaders, innovators, scientists and creatives that inspire our society to be better than it was.
TIME for Kids is a current-events magazine that helps every child in our class read and enjoy learning. It also helps boost reading and critical-thinking skills that our children need to succeed in the classroom, on tests, and beyond. With journalists and former educators leading their editorial team, TIME for Kids bring reliable and relevant nonfiction text and primary sources into the classroom for debate, research and meaningful conversation.
These nonfiction articles helps students get excited to talk to one another about current events and real issues that are important to them!
Bringing that excitement to our classroom is what I need your help with.
Your contribution provides each child with a classroom TIME for Kids subscription for the school year with engaging content that helps him or her develop vocabulary, reading comprehension, critical thinking, news literacy and writing skills.
