Time For Learning!

My students need Time Magazine for Kids to help them learn more about the world and let them experience more informational, complex text.

My Students

My students are at-risk academically, but eager to learn. Goal: to enlighten their knowledge and excitement of the world through reading while providing good visuals. Time magazine meets numerous common core objectives and will be integrated into reading, writing, social studies, and science.

Our school is high poverty (95%), and has a very diverse ethnic population.

One third of my class qualifies for ELL services. Numerous home languages are spoken. The students deal with custom issues, gangs, and survival of basic needs. They come to school with smiles and are ready to learn. Due to limited experiences and backgrounds, I try to provide as many visuals as possible to enhance understanding. They are excited to borrow books to take home because they have limited resources for reading at home.

My Project

TIME magazine will provide an opportunity for students to explore the world around us with great visuals, and enhance their understanding of the components of informational text, - which is one of our state standards. We have limited nonfiction material and this source will be invaluable. We will use it in our reading centers, as well as in writing to take two column notes in our science journals. I am hoping the students will discover new topics they want to do further research on, or search out new books on a topic. Since we have a whiteboard, the visuals can be brightly displayed as we discuss them to further enhance background knowledge, engagement and enthusiasm.

One of the biggest obstacles in teaching students with high needs is their lack of personal experiences so they can relate to reading and class discussions.

TIME magazine will provide opportunities for our students to be aware of current events and to learn about the world around us through science topics. I believe they will be excited to have ownership of their own reading material which will enhance motivation and engagement.
