My Students

The potential of a child is the most intriguing and stimulating thing in all creation. I want to provide activities for my students to help them achieve their full potential in my class and an inviting place to do so, so that they can continue to build on the solid foundation that I help them build in first grade.

These students will come to me with different backgrounds in learning.

It is my job to teach them where they are and build new knowledge as they are ready. I am excited to be at a school where the staff lives out our motto each day "Every Child, Everyday, Whatever It Takes." To do that we must all work hard make every minute count that kids are in class count.

My Project

My first graders need access to a variety of quality texts. Through these magazine subscriptions, students will have access to important world events and topics. They will increase their vocabulary and ability to understand different types of texts.

I can still remember Scholastic News days when I was kid.

It was SO exciting to open up a magazine made just for kids. While reading these magazines, students will learn about current events and science while improving their reading fluency and skills all while students don't even realize they are learning.

These magazines are very engaging and also offer online support through videos and visuals as well as teacher materials to extend each topic.
