"Is this a true story?" I love that question when posed by one of my wide-eyed, curious students. Scholars today need to be immersed in nonfiction texts in order to meet the rigor of the Common Core Standards. Unfortunately, my classroom lacks this engaging expository text.
My students are curious, innovative, and excited third graders that come from a range of backgrounds.
Many of my students have a basic understanding of the science-rich culture from which they were born into, but they need the up-to-date current information which scholastic science magazines provide. My students are inquisitive and ponder questions that can be easily researched with the flip of magazine. Everyday I am amazed at the level of thinking that happens within my classroom, yet I am not able to provide for them the tools they need to expand their depth and complexity skills.
Super Science magazines capture the excitement of science. Every issue is filled with incredible life, earth, and physical science topics that engage students. Students will be able to closely read nonfiction text that relates to topics that are happening in real time. The real world science topics are not only engaging for all students, but this rich information text always provides ample connections to the Common Core and STEM standards. Also, a paid print subscription includes online resources, including videos, games, lesson plans, and skills sheets. Students will have access to a variety of topics ranging from a scientist in the Netherlands who has grown hamburger meat in a petri dish to learning how a famous research submarine got a high tech makeover.
Reading fiction is still a critical part of learning to read at home and school, but the Common Core elevates the importance of nonfiction.
These standards are designed to ensure college and career readiness in an increasingly competitive and fast-paced world. Most classrooms, including my own, are not equipped to meet this challenge. Using the Super Science Scholastic magazines will allow my students to dig deeper into informational text skills which are required of the 21st century learner.Read More
