"Let's Find Out" in Spanish Scholastic Magazine Review & Giveaway

Hello my friends!!
I am very excited to share with you a review for the "Let's Find Out" in Spanish from Scholastic Magazine! Scholastic contacted me a few weeks ago asking me to test their magazine (I was in seventh heaven when I read their email!) Sadly, because I am not in the classroom, I couldn't do a class set. However, they asked me to still do the review as an educator and I offered to blog about it. So let's get started!

Magazine Set

The monthly magazine set comes with Teacher's Big Issues and student matching small issues (one per student). I really think this is a great magazine. The photographs that you find in them are very clear and crispy! The information given is perfect for students to read and very enganging.
The teacher's big Issue  is perfect to be placed on a board for a visual to engage students. If you use this in small groups, you can also place it on a easel and use it during an intro discussion before students use their own magazine. This magazine is perfect for Prek, K, and 1st grades. However, I can see a second grade teacher using them for students who might be below reading level.



I love the enganging reading inside of each issue and the interactive questions. On the back of the magazine, it comes with an activity that students can either solve on their own or in a small group.


The monthly set includes a small reading issue. This is perfect to use in small groups. The pictures are great and the sentences are mixed with pictures, which makes it a great fit for early literacy. 



In addition to the magazine, you also get a Teacher's Guide. In there, you can find a snapshot of what you can find online for that monthly set (issue sample, videos, games, and activities) and lesson ideas for each issue included in the monthly set.


The Online Access

Besides getting the print resources that I mentioned above. You also get an online access to the magazine! In there, you don't only find the reading issue, it also has a feature where it reads out loud! In addition to this great feature, you can also find enganging videos that are related to the reading, games, and even printables!


The printables are easy to find and print! They include a variaty of skills. You can find activities for sentences structure, phonological awareness (final sounds), predictions (a big halleluyah!), counting/symmetry, diagrams, and reflections.

  1. Hola!!! Usaría este recurso para la unidad de animales que ahí con mis estudiantes. Ellos escogen que animal quieren investigar y leemos libros y vemos documentales en clase. Una de las más grandes dificultades de ser maestra de español es que no hay muchos materiales como libros de español. Gracias por hacer estás rifas! Estos les fascinaría a Mis estudiantes!!! Gracias.

  2. I would use this during our animal research unit and during our guided reading time. My students would love to investigate using magazines with colorful pictures and they would have a lot of fun using their computers to access the online components. colorfulkarla831@yahoo.com

  3. I would love to use this to facilitate English/Spanish biliteracy with my English learners. Tonight I wrapped up another series of parent English classes focusing on reading. I think these would be a great tool to build lessons and more class content around family literacy. erika_a_bell@hotmail.com
