Reading Scholastic News.

Watching the news.

CNN Student News, with Carl Azuz.

One of our favorite parts of the week is watching the news and reading news materials.  We can find out what is going on in the world from our corner of the world from our own classroom.  Ask the students what they've been learning this week about Hurricane Sandy.  It might not have hit our state, but they know it will still have an impact on them in other ways.  Also, with the election coming up, our news sources are giving us lots of information about the candidates.  Talk to your kids about it at home to see what they've learned and to open up the conversation about the importance of the voting process.  Watching the news together is a fun way to start those conversations!
