My students need 26 subscriptions to the weekly news magazine, "Time For Kids."
What are schools like in other parts of the world? What natural disasters do kids face in other parts of our country? What freedoms do I have that are not enjoyed by others in various countries of the world? News articles in "Time For Kids" stimulate thinking about what's going on beyond US.
My diverse class of 26 is made up of 12 sixth- and 14 fifth-grade children.
These students in the Highly Capable Program have great attitudes toward learning, tend to be extraordinarily creative, and love to discuss! Some have never been beyond our State of Washington, while others make regular trips to Asia. Our school is located in a suburban area. Two students in the class walk to school, but the majority ride a school bus daily. Some come early to sing in the choir, to serve on Safety Patrol, or to participate in Chess Club, PE Club, or Student Council. Most students in the class are involved in extracurricular activities such as playing on a sports team or taking music lessons. The majority of the students live in single-family homes in stable neighborhoods. It is likely that our year-end roster will be identical to that with which we began. This stability helps us develop a close sense of community within the walls of our classroom.
"Time For Kids" magazine provides national and world news at a child's level. Not only does the magazine serve as a resource to keep students aware of what is going on in the world, but through reading the nonfiction text, reading skills are developed as well. From human interest stories to news articles about conflict and political upheaval in other countries, students are given a glimpse of the world beyond their school and neighborhood. Reading "Time For Kids" helps students expand their knowledge of our world and its people, leading to students appreciating their lives as well as the lives of others. It helps them think beyond themselves and consider ways that they can make a positive difference in our world.
In our digital age, paper and ink publications are becoming an endangered species.
Please allow my students the opportunity to hold a news magazine in hand, peruse its pages, and participate in lively discussions about what's going on in our world. Thank you!
