My Students

As I prepare my classroom for my new group of first graders, I think about the goals, expectations, and experiences that I will provide for them. This year, I plan on starting math centers for the first time!

First graders are like sponges...ready to learn anything that I present to them.

They are curious, observant, and social. We will have obstacles to manage. We are a Title I school and so have a high population of low-income families. Many of my students will likely come to me without being able to read and/or have poor math and language skills. That doesn't hold us back though, we are ready to take on first grade!

My Project

When TIME For Kids arrives my students will have an age-appropriate resource that will help them learn about their world. We will read and discuss the topics that will be of high interest to them. The magazine will appeal to their natural sense of curiosity.

Through the introduction of the Common Core Standards, students are expected to read equal amounts of fiction and informational text.

I am noticing how much my students love learning about real things! I want to continue this enthusiasm and I believe that the TIME For Kids magazine will nicely supplement my science and social studies curriculum.
