Newsweek for Pre-K Speak

My students need 18 copies each of Weekly Reader and Time for Kids for our pre-kindergarten program.

My Students

"What will school be like and what will we learn? These are the questions my preschoolers will have when they start school for the first time in September. Weekly Reader and Time for Kids are subscriptions that teach children current events, science, holidays, and other pertinent subjects.

In September, I will be teaching 18 three and four year olds who are coming to school for the first time.

My students' come from a struggling, high needs, urban neighborhood in New York City. The parents of our students' are working hard to make a better life for their families and desire a stellar education for their children.

My Project

Weekly Reader and Time for Kids are periodicals that are child friendly, capture children's interest and spark imaginations. One of my goals this year is to have the children speak in class and express themselves. The children will orally discuss the news each week in class after discussing this at home and this will give us the opportunity to work on language development. For example, if we have read about pumpkins, they can retell what they have learned and discuss all the different things that can be done with pumpkins. We can make pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin pudding, we can paint pumpkins or turn them into a jack o'lantern by carving a face. My students' also need these publications to help build reading skills and to learn about the society they live in as well as different cultures. These periodicals will also teach themes from all the curriculum areas. These periodicals will inspire and motivate my young students.

Each week, the children will receive a colorful "Weekly Reader" that will teach various themes.

For example, in the Fall issue they will learn about fire safety, Autumn, school, and holidays. The children will feel so important and proud to bring home their magazines each week. It is also a wonderful home/school connection and a terrific resource. By using these periodicals, my young learners will be on their way to becoming better educated and will learn to be concerned about the world.
