My Students

This is my first year teaching and I want to make sure that I make it the best possible for my students. Most have not discovered the potential found in reading. I want to introduce them to the many ways to use books and magazines to ensure their reading success with Scholastic magazines and readers

I have 25 students that I split between morning and afternoon.

They are all super curious and love learning new things, especially science. We are in a small rural area, so are school only consists of one class for each grade. I would love to introduce my students to the Scholastic magazines and Rebus readers. I think that this will help them to determine their reading style, as well as so many other opportunities to learn in other subjects.

My Project

This is copied from Scholastic but describes the magazines better than I can: "Thematic Units-Led by Clifford the Big Red Dog, students explore a new seasonal or social development theme in each issue, like fire safety, weather, or manners. Vocabulary-Grow big vocabularies with key words such as camouflage and tradition. Social Development-Discussion questions cover core social-development areas for young children, such as being kind and sharing. Movement and Fingerplays, sign language, and other kinetic learning activities help wiggly kids learn. Language-Rhyming songs and poems build phonological awareness. ABC's and Numbering-Make early-childhood learning fun with simple activities that teach letter recognition, counting, patterns, and shapes. These magazines will help my students learn in so many ways, plus they will be able to work on activities at home with their parents. This will help the students understand that home and school work together for their benefit.

Without your help, we will be unable to supply these magazines and readers for our class.

To have a set of readers to work with the students on reading in small groups would be phenomenal for them. The readers and magazines will help them improve in so many different areas of their education.
