My Students

My students come to school every day anxious to learn and to be together. Many of them face challenges at home, and are being raised by single parents. Our Title I school is located in a high poverty neighborhood and many students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Despite these facts, my second graders come to school willing to work hard to learn all they can.

My students are active, curious and love to be at school.

In spite of the challenging home lives many of them have. When they arrive in the classroom, we are a community of learners who work and play together. Before long, we are friends who encourage, support and challenge each other. Though many of the kids do not have experiences considered "typical" for childhood, I know that they are all capable of so much in the areas of reading, math, writing, science and social studies. Nothing gives me more joy than to see them discover all the things they can be successful at.

My Project

A subscription to Scholastic News for each student in my classroom will provide my second graders with opportunities to read authentic non fiction text. Scholastic News includes articles about current events and science topics, as well as tables, charts, maps and other text features to support the information.

With Scholastic News we'll visit places around the world.

Many students don't have the opportunity to travel, or to visit museums, aquariums or other learning centers. The interesting articles in Scholastic News are accompanied by full color photographs to give students a real life experience. Scholastic News will support our learning in Science and Social Studies for the entire school year.
