My Students

In my classroom, I try very hard to instill a love of reading and learning in every student. I want them to be able to relate to every topic taught through out the curriculum. Social Studies is often very boring for students because of the wordy and difficult to read text books.

My third grade students are typically very diverse and come from a variety of demographic and culture backgrounds.

They all have the desire to learn in different ways but because of financial hardships at home, sometimes purchasing "extra" school supplies can be an issue. The school they attend is always trying to find ways to encourage student learning not just in the classroom but also at home. With Time for Kids, I will be able to spark student interest at school and then they can further explore at home with their families.

My Project

TIME For Kids is a weekly classroom news magazine that motivates kids to read! Issues cover a wide range of real-world topics kids love to learn about - and it's the best nonfiction text you'll find! A powerful teaching tool, TIME For Kids builds reading and writing skills and is easily integrated across the curriculum, including social studies, science and math. Having Time for Kids as an extra resource will allow me to create and implement a wide range of hands on learning activities that will help students relate to the real world around them! It will also introduce students to topics they have not learned about before and will allow them to share what they have learned at home with their families.

Did you know that most social studies textbooks are written at least 2 grades above the current grade level??

We have all had the hard to read and uninteresting social studies book. What better way to motivate students to read and learn about the world around them by exploring Time For Kids. They will see real life photos and learn about current events in math, science, and most importantly social studies!
