Help me give my students the opportunity to read about science in Scholastic Super Science Magazine!!! Reading about science current events engages students in what they are learning in the classroom. Real world application brings learning to life!!!
My students are full of G.R.I.T.--gumption, resiliency, integrity, and tenacity! My students are my family, and I want them to be successful, in science and in life. It is my goal to inspire each student to become an independent, lifelong learner capable of critical thinking and great achievement. I want every student to realize that they can find success in what they do and that no achievement is small or insignificant.
Students love exploring, experimenting, and engaging.
Many of my students are identified as having a learning disability, dyslexia, or other health impairments that have to be overcome in my classroom. New ways of building excitement in the classroom have to be introduced so that every student comes to school ready to learn. Items as simple as colored pens, markers, bright neon paper, and cardstock can help students become more engaged in the classroom.
Students need to understand the real world application of what they learn in the classroom. The relevant, interesting and engaging articles in Scholastic's Super Science Magazine provides grade-level, appropriate opportunity for fifth grade scientists to learn about science in their world. Monthly magazines bring excitement and engagement into the science classroom throughout the year.
While reading science current event articles, students can use colorful pens to underline vocabulary words, create connections and make notes while they read.
Colored pens can also be used to create reports and summaries of what they learned from their reading. Colored pens create colorful opportunities to be engaged in all aspects of learning.
