My students need a class subscription for Time for Kids magazines to read about current events.
I am a first grade teacher at a charter school on Chicago's West Side. There are 26 students in my classroom, mostly from the surrounding neighborhoods. In my general education classroom I am responsible for teaching all subjects, including math, reading, social studies, and writing to my students.
The students that I work with all come from low income/poverty homes.
They receive free meals at school and many do not have money for new supplies. Many of my students are not given the opportunity to read or even hear the news. Many of them have never been able to travel outside of their own neighborhoods and do not know about the world and activities going on around them.
I would like to order 'Time for Kids' for my students to help them learn how to read and to gain experience reading a different kind of reading material. Many students are only knowledgeable about the books that they read at school because their families are unable to afford to buy other types of reading materials. I would also like them to be able to read about news and current events that relate to their own lives so that they may know what is going on around them. These magazines would be used during our Social Studies and reading time to help us expand our knowledge in those areas.
'Time for Kids' is an excellent magazine and gives students, even at this young age, information that they may use to relate to their own lives.
I would like for my students to be knowledgeable about life events other than what they experience at home or within their own families. Using this magazine during Social studies, we can create lessons that will help us relate the new information we learn to our own experiences.
