Mrs. Bettencourt from Spanaway WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Time For Kids; Let's Educate On Current Events!

My students need to hear stories about topics that are relevant to them and reflective to the world around them and Time for Kids magazines would allow them to learn about current events.

My Students

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met right where they are! They are truly an incredible group and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

Curious, enthusiastic and creative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge.

My Project

Using magazines can help supplement current curriculum with differentiation, teaching and reinforcing many skills. Some of the skills include inference, non-fiction text features, comparisons, metaphors/similes and summarizing. I will use this to teach students about current events and I will use this to teach non-fiction strategies. I am excited to incorporate Time Magazine in my classroom this school year.

Classroom magazines can be an effective teaching strategy!

Time Magazine for Kids is an excellent way to teach students publishing features such as captions, headers, sub headers, illustrations, bold words, timelines, word boxes, footnotes, etc. Time for Kids is also a fun and interesting resource for those students who may not be drawn to non-fiction text.
