Make Current Events an Interactive Experience!

By Beth Newingham on April 2, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

With all that is currently happening in our country and around the world, I find it more important than ever to keep my students informed of current events. I use Scholastic News not only because the weekly editions are written at an appropriate level for my 3rd graders, but because they also include a new "whiteboard-ready" interactive option with the subscription.

The digital edition can be displayed on your interactive whiteboard -- a great option for sharing reading in primary classrooms! Students can watch videos related to the text to find exciting additional information. Teachers can access both current and previous editions at any time. Teacher editions, skills sheets, and even alternate versions of the cover story written at a lower reading level are also available.
