My Students

I teach first grade at a Title I school in South Florida. We have a large multicultural population. In addition to English a few of the languages my students speak at home are Spanish, Portuguese, and Haitian-Creole.

My students are like most six year olds.

They come to school everyday curious and eager to learn. They want to make friends, play, and learn. However, most also come to school hungry. They get free breakfast and lunch at my school and also on Fridays receive a backpack with food to get them through the weekend.

My Project

Scholastic News will help me teach my students to read and foster independence while they read age appropriate non-fiction. I'm trying to teach the children to read while also teaching them about the world around them. Doing both of these things can be difficult.

Non-fiction age appropriate materials are the most challenging to come across.

When a child realizes he is reading a magazine on their own, their face lights up. I love to hear from parents that their child came home and told them about what they learned. Scholastic News Magazine are truly the best and I feel every child should have the opportunity to read them.
