Scholastic News and Science Spin

My students need 22 copies each of Scholastic News and Time for Kids to supplement non-fictional reading and science instruction.

My Students

The only access to current events and real time science information occurs at school, as the majority of my students do not have online or print exposure outside of the classroom.

My second grade students, in the state of Texas attend a public elementary school in a large urban area.

Ninety-Six percent of our student body qualify for the federal lunch program. Even so, they come with a lust for knowledge, excited to read and understand anything that is put in front of them.

My Project

To encourage and motivate my second grade life long learners I would like to provide a subscription for each student to Scholastic News and Time for Kids. Each week students could be immersed in authentic literature at an appropriate reading level. Opportunities are provided for writing practice that requires logical arguments, relevant evidence, textual analysis, and research. Discussion questions, activities, big issues, and more all provide opportunities for one-on-one, small-group, and whole-class learning. New vocabulary is highlighted to help students determine word meanings, appreciate the nuances of words, and steadily expand vocabulary. Online Resources with every magazine help develop critical media skills

With the use of these classroom magazines students will gain and practice critical thinking skills.

Not only will they think deeper, but have the opportunity to examine current issues, which may effect them now or in the future and create logical arguments for their point of view.
