I love seeing my students everyday. They work harder than most students because they are challenged with learning a second language. They started learning French in kindergarten. They will continue with learning French up to the 8th grade. It's a joy to hear them sing in a different language and speak. They have a unique drive. Even at the age of 6 and 7 they know the college prep high school they want to attend as well as the university or college. It's a joy to teach them.
A subscription to Time For Kids will help my students stay on top of current events in our world. My primary use for this will be in student centers. It will help them with their fluency. Also my scholars will be enriched with new vocabulary and terms.
While students are in their centers, they will read silently then discuss as a group.
After that, they will write down information about the article. This will include the title, challenging vocabulary words, and what was learned from the article. Once center time is over, the group will come together as a whole for discussion.
