My Students

My students have been working hard to expand their love of reading. We love traveling to new places through books and learning about this beautiful world on our journeys. Literature can act as a vehicle to help us engage with our common core curriculum, but also to help students work through life-lessons.

My students are happy, resilient children attending a high-poverty school in California.

They desire to achieve at the same level as students all over the country, but at times lack the necessary resources. They come from a variety of different backgrounds. I have students who are second language learners, low socio-economic backgrounds, students who are receiving special services, and students who excel in most academic areas.

My Project

I used TIME For Kids magazine last year with my fifth graders in social studies and they loved reading them. I used them as a current event activity and they always looked forward to it. We sometimes partner read and reported out to the class about what we read, and I sometimes assigned an article for homework and the students wrote about the main idea and key details. I also enjoyed and started to use the electronic version of the magazine. The students enjoyed listening to the automated readings. It allows them to get a feel about what is going on in our world and our country.
