Thank you to the LESD Education Foundation for the wonderful gift of National Geographic Young Explorer Magazine for the Kindergarten classes at Smith School. Each of our 3 classes have already received their first issue. Each student loves having their own copy as we read the articles together, examine the photos, and even highlight new vocabulary words. We also keep our magazines in our book bags for use during our independent reading time and buddy reading with our 4th grade buddies. As we continue to receive issues, we’ll also be taking them home to share with our families. They have been a great way to get grade level non-fiction text into our classroom! Thanks again, we truly appreciate your generous donation.
