Our 4th grade students walk in the door "ready to learn". They are curious, clever learners who come from diverse households. Our school serves a high percentage of children who receive free or reduced lunch and live in low income housing. Many of our students receive "blessings in a bag", so that they can have food over the weekend.
We want our students to have various forms of text to read in and out of the classroom.
Having these Scholastic News magazines would allow them to have text in their hands which can also go home.
Having the Scholastic News in our 4th grade classrooms will allow our students to have access to current events and non-fiction articles that are kid friendly, inviting, and colorful. In 4th grade we want our students to read every day and these magazines will allow another option besides a book. The non-fiction material also allows the students to read independently at their grade level. This magazine supports standards on reading informational text, which is an area that students often score low in on state-wide assessments, as well as writing, speaking, listening and language. When reading these current events articles we will also be able to touch on science and social studies topics also.
