My students need 25 magazine subscriptions that I will share with two classes to read during centers on Science is Fun Fridays!
Extra, Extra read all about; SCIENCE at a kid-friendly level with amazing graphics,stories, and inquiry-based experiments that link to the Common CORE Standards.
I teach sixth grade in a rural school in the Lower student Delta in Western Alaska which consists of primarily Yupik native students that are eligible for free and reduced lunch.
My students are not exposed to a variety of reading materials at home. As a matter of fact, when visiting my student's home, there have not been any books or reading materials to be found in the home except for perhaps a Cabella'Âs catalog.
As a sixth grade teacher, I know that adolescents have an enormous interest in science. The Scholastic Super Science magazine is a way to expose students to non-fiction writing in both science and social studies. With the limited classroom allowances, this is not something that the school can provide and families cannot afford.
Super Science is an eye-catching magazine with glossy photographs and excellent articles that keep the attention of my students and align to the Common CORE Standards.
Non-fiction text is not readily available except for the dated textbooks that are hit and miss. Super Science is a great opportunity for my students to interact with the current news and develop an interest in science literacy and geography skills at reading levels they can comprehend while mastering the grade level expectancies.
