Each morning we start our day off with a news broadcast by upper grade students. My class is always so excited to hear about what is happening in our community.
I teach in a low-income, high-poverty school.
My students come to school facing many challenges and school work isn't always a top priority. I work very hard to make each topic we are learning about interesting and exciting so my students are eager to tell their family about what they are learning. My goal each day is for my students to be so excited about their learning that they, in turn, get their families excited.
The Scholastic News Magazine and Science Spin Magazine will give my students a new form of nonfiction reading. These magazines provide text that is easy for all of my students to read and real photographs. I will be able to tie in our learning topics to these magazines. I will also use these magazines to teach my students about how nonfiction text works with pictures, captions, and diagrams. The students will be able to read these magazines and use them as tools for research and discussion with their peers.
The best part about the magazines is that my students will be able to take them home to keep.
They can then share with their family members the newfound knowledge they have. These magazines will help bridge the gap between home and school just a little bit more.
