My students need high-interest, relevant, and developmentally appropriate reading materials to use when practicing comprehension strategies.
The students are in 3rd grade in a semi-rural public elementary school in Georgia. Our classroom is in a Title I school (63% economically disadvantaged) but that does not limit our potential for learning and growth! Third-grade is a pivotal year; my students are transforming into 'big-kids' with 21st century skills.
My students are active, mobile, and thrive on choice in the classroom.
My students love to read and still love to listen to reading. They sit together and read to each other. They choose quiet places and dive in.
Our goal is to make our classroom a place where students have the materials and support necessary to engage in meaningful, self-directed learning.
My students need high-interest, relevant, and developmentally appropriate reading materials to use when practicing comprehension strategies. Using Time for Kids in the classroom helps to motivate my young readers to learn about current events and issues. We know that students benefit from active engagement with a variety of reading resources to help broaden their background knowledge and vocabulary. I use TFK, (Time for Kids), to foster critical thinking skills. Time for Kids grabs my students attention. They also love having their own magazines to keep.
This subscription helps promote financial literacy and awareness of the world beyond our walls.
Each article is written with my students age and interests in mind. Last year, when teaching conservation and environmental standards, we used TFK articles about glitter and Legos to examine plastics and biodegradable materials. When teaching students about the economy, we read the 'Your Money' paired subscription articles that explained economic principles and entrepreneurship with relevant examples of summer jobs and pop culture references.
I love having the flexibility of digital resources to differentiate the reading levels of articles for my 'higher' and 'lower' readers. The digital resources also allow us to pair reading passages about a common topic to further develop our knowledge and critical analysis. My students love reading with Time for Kids.
