Extra, Extra, 2nd Graders Read All About It!

Ms. Berg’s second grade class receives an annual subscription to Scholastic News, helpful for emergent readers

Student Grant Recipients Total: 23 students

Estimated Award Amount: $188.50

STARS covered the full cost of the Scholastic News subscription for Ms. Berg’s second grade class. Scholastic News provides young readers an opportunity to explore nonfiction texts including articles on current events, science news, and high interest topics to engage in the reading process.  Providing a subscription for each student allows students to store their magazines and read them multiple times, which is especially helpful for emergent readers to gain sight word and reading strategy knowledge. Scholastic News is integrated into the classroom curriculum as a supplement to social studies, science, writing and reading. 

The subscription also includes the Science Spin add-on, available only for second graders. Students will receive digital content, articles, and skills sheets each month on a variety of scientific topics including Helping Animals, Volcanoes, and Engineering.
