My Students

Our school is in a high poverty, inner city area where many of our students don't have access to books or academic materials at home. My classroom has 15 energetic, book loving students from many different backgrounds and countries.

These first grade kiddos are just beginning their educational journey and love for reading, writing, math and school.

Students engage with learning through technology, small group conversations, games and individual work. Technology gives students the ability to work with standards in a different and engaging way.

My Project

As we embark to a new building next year our first grade team is thinking of new and exciting ways to introduce our students to nonfiction texts. We will be introducing a new science curriculum that will lend itself well to these additional science magazines.

Scholastic News is a wonderful way for our students to interact with real, age appropriate, interesting nonfiction topics!

We will use these magazines to deepen our understanding of nonfiction literature. It will show students that nonfiction and science topics are not just isolated to the books in our library but happening every day around us! These magazines will shake up our literature and science blocks making their learning engaging and fun!
