My students need varied reading materials which will enrich their learning. They would love to have 30 (one for each student) Scholastic News magazines.
My students are eager to learn about facts and places they aren't familiar with. I don't have a set of any materials that can do that for them, except for Scholastic News. With funding cuts, I cannot purchase them this year.
My students are bright, eager, and want information.
They want to become diverse learners. Because of the vast material Scholastic offers, I feel these magazines fit the bill! My class is bright and they love to read. They need more than I have to give them. In the age of technology, we don't have enough computers or iPads, etc. to utilize them effectively. I have 30 students and feel that Scholastic will reach each diverse need.
I can take my class places altogether, that I can't take them in any other way. Scholastic offers a variety of approaches when presenting factual information. They can learn about what is happening in the United States, around the world, and they will get it in their "language".
I know I will see graphs which will cover parts of math, social studies, and science. There are also human interest stories that will appeal to their age group. Also, we are stressing writing. Scholastic presents issues with opposing sides that make for excellent writing extensions.
I have no other materials that will impact my entire class the way Scholastic can.
One of the very best characteristics of Scholastic News is it's diversity. There is no other material I know of that covers all curricular areas in the effective way that Scholastic News can. My kids love to read. How wonderful it would be if I had current articles that are written with their interests in mind, at their fingertips. I simply do not know what other classroom material can do that.
