My Students

The majority of my students have never looked at a magazine. They have no idea how magazines can open doors into the world just like books can. Informational text is a staple in our classroom. Any for of informational text draws my students out of their shells.

The school we are at is a Title I school.

Many of my students are either homeless or from a low socio-economic background. My new classroom has inclusions students, ELL students, and general ed students. All of them are craving to read books on their level. They have varying interests that I try an accommodate. My students are starving for books in their hands. Many do not own books and many are unable to get to a public library. This means our classroom library is where they find books to read.

My Project

Reading is an important skill. It does open a reader's mind to a fantastic place filled with excitement. It also gives readers like my students a look into the world around us; a world outside of our community. A subscription for every child to Time Magazine for Kids is the answer to giving my students a window into the world around and a window to the world outside of our community. Time Magazine is a wonderful informational magazine that covers Science, and Social Studies. Time will be used for whole group lessons as well as small group lessons to help my students understand different aspects of Science and Social Studies. It also comes with wonderful online resources that will allow my students further explore different topics. After we are done with one magazine it will become a resource for the students to take home. A resource they can refer back to as many times as they choose.

Time Magazine for Kids will provide all the science my students will need this school year.

Without it my students will have little or no material for Science. Time will give my students many different areas of Science to look at, discuss, and explore. The Social Studies portion will fill in any gaps may have in Social Studies. Furthermore the between the magazine and the online resources my students have a window into many different parts of our wold.
