My first grade students are AWESOME! They are explorers and they are constantly on the move.
Many of my students have parents that are in the military and are currently deployed .
We are a low wealth district in North Carolina. Our school is a title 1 school and 70 % of our students receive free/reduced lunch.
I may not be able to control their home lives but I really try to provide meaningful and memorable experiences for them every day.
Scholastic News/Science Spin will provide the students with exposure to informational (non-fiction) text on their grade level. These magazines also help with comprehension, locating answers to questions in text, analyzing and supporting central idea, and using text and graphic features.All of these skills are tested on our end of grade tests.
The magazines will be sent home each week, have colorful photos, grade-level topics (animals, government, and habitats Having these magazines in the home will help build the students' at-home libraries, provide non-fictional reading opportunities, and build on independent learning.
Without your help I won't be able to get these magazines for my kiddos.
