My students are part of a Title I elementary school located in Northwest Indiana. We are considered a high poverty school, but we never let that interfere with our motivation and/or ability to succeed. We have a student population of about 75% African American and Hispanic. My students are hard-working, caring, and motivated to succeed. I provide interventions to students in grades kindergarten through fourth. I see every grade level for thirty minutes a day every day, and in some cases, I see students longer based on need.
I would love to bring Scholastic News to my students. I work with students in grades kindergarten through fourth that struggle in all aspects of reading. Nonfiction texts tend to be the least favorite of my students. I believe that incorporating Scholastic News would be a creative and fun way to learn nonfiction text features and learn about the world around us. The Scholastic News subscriptions keeps students engaged with current events and topics while aligning to the academic standards. The students loved the sample I received last year, but I wasn’t able to acquire the funding to incorporate Scholastic News on my own.
