Time Kids Magazine: Writing Responses to Current Events

My students need 33 subscriptions to the weekly magazine, Time for Kids.

My Students

Help me educate our future presidents, doctors, scientists, & teachers! With the school budget challenges, our students are exposed to very little non-fiction and informational text, such as magazines on current worldly events. America's future leaders love reading about the world around them!

My third grade students are curious about the events they hear on the news or from friends and family, especially when it concerns our local community or their home country.

Our student population has students from all over the world and they want to read and discuss events. Our classroom is very collaborative and non-fiction text, such as Time for Kids, lends itself to fantastic discussion and debate. Our students are ready for critical thinking and analytical response. We are requesting third grade magazines.

My Project

Each week, our class will have a current event that we will choose from our Time for Kids Magazine. The event will be read, researched, discussed, and then students will provide a written response. Their response will be analytical and opinionated. Our National Standards (Common Core Standards) state that high-quality informational text will serve as models for students' writing. Students are also required to read informational texts and use a variety of analysis and comprehension strategies to understand facts they read. Our Time for Kids will allow our students to succeed in our grade level expectations and set them up for success in the rest of their academic careers.

Having the subscription for Time for Kids will excite students to learn and research current events and other non-fiction topics.

Learning should be fun and all students love non-fiction, especially when we relate the text to their personal lives. Please help me fund this exciting and very important classroom project!
