We Want To Read The News, Too!

My students need 26 subscriptions to both Scholastic News magazine and TIME for Kids magazine to help them learn about current events and other nonfiction topics.

My Students

At the end of the school year I want my students to have been exposed to different forms of nonfiction text, and be able to read and understand text about current events and other nonfiction topics.

I have a very curious class of students who are eager to learn.

They are always questioning things and pushing themselves to learn and understand more about what ever topics we are discussing. Many of the students in my class do not have the opportunity to read different forms of text at home and rely on school to expose them to these different options.

My Project

I plan to use Scholastic News and Time for Kids in my daily reading groups, where I will introduce the class to the current events and nonfiction topics. Throughout each week my students will also use these readers in many ways, such as reading in a small group, online, or with partners. I plan to use one of the weekly readers to send home with my students as a part of their homework.

Being exposed to current events and nonfiction topics will help my class meet many of the Common Core Standards.

This will also provide my students with a chance to read and learn about many topics they may not have a chance to otherwise be exposed to. This will give my students an understanding of many science standards as well, helping them build their background knowledge for future grades and learning.
