I teach in Chicago and our school is located in the Englewood area where 99% of the students receive free lunch. My Prekindergarten students are very curious about things around them. They are eager to learn and have not had a lot of exposure to current events and news around the world. I would like for them to have more familiarity with the news and how to gather information from this publication.
The Weekly Reader will enable many students to open windows to the world they live in and become lifelong learners.
Weekly Readers would give us an age and grade level appropriate way to introduce students to
topics that are interesting, increase their background knowledge and build their vocabularies. The Weekly Reader will be used at school as well as at home to further their learning experiences.
