My class is made up of seventeen energetic students with creative minds. We are a part of a small school in a tight-knit rural community. My students understand the importance of having a growth mindset and it shows in their eagerness to learn! They think, wonder and question. They are motivated in everything they do!
My students already love working together to imagine and create!
They enjoy hands-on activities where the learning is student-led and they are free to explore and grow. It will be amazing to watch them plan and produce projects from their own ideas as we progress through the year!
My class loves to move around the room while working. Most enjoy collaborating in small groups, while others like to work and create independently!
My project is for Scholastic News and Science Readers magazines for my 2nd grade students. These magazines would help my students gain the knowledge they need most with engaging, standards-based lessons on science, social studies, math, and language arts.
They include informational text by providing important news stories to build nonfiction-reading skills, spark curiosity, increase content-area knowledge, and inspire a love of learning and reading.
Included in the subscription is a digital component to enhance the print magazine!
I have been teaching for many years and have always used these magazines in my classroom to create interest in all subject areas. Students would cheer when "Scholastic News time" rolled around. I have had the most reluctant readers raise their hands to read from the magazine, answer questions, or participate in class discussions based on the articles.
