Welcome back, teachers!

It’s been Back to School season in our office since... oh, last winter. Seriously! We’ve been testing out new ideas for months, and we’re so excited to unveil the changes and improvements waiting for you. Here we go:

 

IN THE MAGAZINE

“My True Story”: This short nonfiction article highlights inspiring, unforgettable kids from the present and the past.

“The Idiomizer,” a delightful feature about idioms, will appear in every other issue, starting with October/November.

 

ONLINE

Text-to-Speech: This tool allows stories to be read to your students while the words are highlighted on screen.

Full articles: Stories now appear in their entirety on our website.

 

TEACHING MATERIALS

Background Builder: This slideshow gives your students the context they’ll need to fully comprehend the narrative nonfiction article.  

Research Kit: This rigorous activity builds knowledge and walks students through a guided research path.

 

You'll find all of these features and tools when you access our September 2019 issue.

Our goal, as always, is to make teaching as simple and joyful as it can be. Let me know how we’re doing at KCorridan@Scholastic.com!
