Scholastic? Fantastic! News for Kids!

My students need subscriptions to Scholastic News to help them keep up with current events and learn about informational texts.

My Students

In our class, we have created a friendly environment focused on student learning. While students are encouraged to learn things for themselves, we also have a "be the teacher" attitude, where students help each other learn and thrive.

My students come from a title one school, meaning that they have the lowest income area in the district.

Additionally, almost every student comes from a single family home where the parent works or from a home where both parents work, resulting in an unfortunate lack of homework help or academic focus. That being said, I have one of the happiest classes I have ever worked with. They are kind to one another, stick up for each other out of the room, and actually hardly ever complain about assignments, which is always a plus! They are hard workers and great friends.

My Project

Unfortunately, many of my students do not have access to the news, current events, or any kind of articles at home. While our reading program tries to balance informational texts with more fictitious writing, I am finding that my friends have really struggled with understanding concepts of print where articles are concerned, and even their comprehension strategies vary when reading texts. I believe that by having this resource for our class(which comes with a free app they can download to have access at home as well), my students will be able to have that foundation that comes from reading a variety of texts.

As students have an awareness of what is going on around them, they will be able to grow up to be better citizens tomorrow!

This was prevalent when my students read a sample Scholastic article about how sharks are being hunted and slaughtered by humans. At recess, the kids began to make a plan to help save the sharks without me suggesting anything! They made save the shark posters and everything. Imagine what doors that opened for issues in the future that they feel strongly about!
