Help me give my students Scholastic Science Reader Magazines on Animals and Plants.
I teach in a Title I, K-5 magnet school that educates more than 700 students. At my school, the students come from varied family backgrounds. Some live in traditional households, while others live with single parents, with extended family, or with a foster family. My students' economic situations are just as unique as their family dynamics, and more than sixty percent of our school qualifies for free lunch. A large percentage of our school population consists of English Language Learners.
My class includes students that are gifted and talented, special education, English language learners, non English Speaking Students and have social and emotional issues.
While they face many unique challenges and issues, all are eager to succeed and are hardworking scholars.
“Can we read Scholastic News today?” Last year, this is a question I received on a daily basis when I used the Scholastic News Magazines in my classroom. My students loved reading these magazines. Since my students love nonfiction, I want to get my students multilevel Scholastic Science Readers on Plants and Animals.
Many of my students are reading at least a year or two below grade level.
Despite their reading abilities, most students love reading nonfiction. This is where I see my students come to life as a reader. The Scholastic Magazine allow students to read about current events, have meaningful discussions and research things being read about. When teaching nonfiction units, students absorb the information they are learning like a sponge and get excited to participate in both reading and writing.
The Scholastic News Science Readers will be used during our Readers' Workshop time as well as out Integrated Literacy and Science time. These magazines are geared toward first and second grade and aligned to the Common Core standards in Science. Through using these workbooks, students will continue to strengthen and reinforce skills such as: ask and answer questions about key ideas, compare and contrast, main idea and details, teach them about text features among other things.
These Scholastic News Science Readers engage students in reading and science through accessing high quality on level nonfiction texts.
I want my students to succeed in school and the more materials available to them, the more chances they have to build and strengthen reading comprehension skills. Reading comprehension is the foundation to reading. I want my students to become lifelong learners. By getting these materials, we will be laying a strong reading foundation.
