My Students

My kindergarten students are eager to learn everyday. They get super excited when I introduce a newspaper just like grown-ups read that’s just right for them. Every week they know the day that they will be introduced to a new newspaper and walk in the door saying, “ Today’s the day for our Time for Kids!” It brings joy to my heart to know that they get so super excited about reading & learning. It is also a fantastic feeling when they begin to read them on their own.

My Project

Time for Kids is a great way for the children to become engaged in a topic that is current to the month/season. The topic of each issue is relevant to the students and reflective of the world around them.

It also incorporates ELA with Science,Social Studies and Mathematics

Time for Kids includes lesson plans and teaching resources for each issue, including printable and online assessments.

The students become more engaged in the lessons when it is relatable to them. With the online portion of the newspaper the children also become interactive, they are able to watch videos related to the topic being discussed.
