My students need high-interest non-fiction magazines delivered weekly from Scholastic News.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school is a socioeconomically diverse school in a Title I district. Starting this year, I am co-teaching an inclusion classroom. We will work together to meet a range of student needs.
My second grade students are avid readers whose favorites are Mo Willems' Elephant & Piggie books and Brad Meltzer's Ordinary People Change the World biographies.
Using the tools at our creation station, my students design and build suspension, arched, and beam bridges as a part of our science curriculum.
As second graders, they are very active and they love when I incorporate PE games like banana tag as breaks between subjects. They don't even mind turning into a banana when they get tagged and they await their classmates coming to unpeel them!
Common Core standards recommend a balance between non-fiction and fiction readings. Scholastic News is an incredible resource for supplementing our largely fiction-focused classroom library. This project will allow for a classroom set of 25 copies delivered in 32 editions.
The weekly issues cover a range of topics and often align with science and social studies units planned for the year.
On the calendar are topics such as growth mindset, endangered animals, and author studies.
Because students can keep their copies of the colorful and engaging mini-magazine, Scholastic news will expand their personal libraries of text and help them build their background knowledge.
