My students subscriptions to Scholastic News so they can read informational texts that provide high interest current events that connect and inform them of what is happening in the world around them.
Each morning students begin by reciting our mission statement that rededicates and reminds them why they are at school and what they need to do to be successful in the future. They collaborate in groups to analyze and discuss academics such as current events, science projects, and effects of history
I have 29 fifth graders working in a project based environment.
They are hard working and have minds that crave stimulation. Students take a high interest in what is going on outside the classroom and inside. They love to learn information they can take home and share with family and friends. Many of my students prefer to read or catch up on work rather than go out to recess. We have 6 cohorts and collaborate every day for an hour. We rotate through groups for subject focus, intervention, and targeted instruction. Students are eager to move forward and prepare themselves for middle and high school. Students attend an extended day and do all of their work at school. Our school has a strong no homework policy and believe the teachers are the professionals. Administration gives us support, resources, and time to prepare engaging hands on lessons. Students also have daily fine arts classes such as art, tech, music, and PE. These classes are taught by single subject credentialed teachers.
Using Scholastic News, my students will read high interest non-fiction articles that will connect them to their world. Digital teaching tools will compliment any and all articles. This magazine will teach science and social study concepts that will compliment our common core and state standards. Issues link science topics to math, engineering, careers, and technology. This material will support STEM and provide engaging full-color pages to add interest to learning. Critical thinking activities will engage students and prepare them for 21 century thinking skills.
Students have curriculum that contain fiction and nonfiction stories that do not contain current events.
This grant will provide grade level appropriate articles from events that are interesting to them and that connect them to their everyday world. Magazines contain technology and digital teaching tools that will engage students. Vocabulary, sideshows, debates, and interactive puzzles will help with reading comprehension and increase student understanding of informational text.Read More
