My third graders are mostly from underprivileged families. They come from all family dynamics, and the majority of students do not come from "nuclear" families. Often times the students are raised by family members other than their parents, or they come from foster care.
All students at our school get free breakfast and lunch.
For some students, these are the only meals they will eat that day.
Many students come into my classroom to be loved first, then to learn!
My students need a subscription to Scholastic News to be exposed to nonfiction text that connects them to the world they live in. Scholastic News Magazine is targeted towards specific grade levels and includes articles that align with science and social studies standards.
Scholastic News Magazine will change my classroom.
Each subscription includes differentiation through text-to-speech options online as well as articles written in multiple reading levels.
I love that Scholastic also has an online component. My students will be able to read an article in the magazine, then watch a related video on the Scholastic website to further their investigations. Assessment quizzes that correlate with the articles will help my students build reading skills needed to pass the state test in the spring.
