Scholastic "Let's Find Out" in Spanish for September! GIVEAWAY

Hello everyone!!!
I am soooo excited to be back with some AWESOME NEWS! Scholastic  has asked me to test their magazine for the month of September and do a review as an educator. I really enjoy looking at these magazines because it gives me a chance to see what other resources can be helpful for my kiddos.

Magazine Set

The monthly magazine set comes with Teacher's Big Issues and student matching small issues (one per student). This monthly set is pretty amazing because it contains very good topics that would work perfectly for the beginning of the school year. The information given is great for students to read independently 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 or even during a whole group activity (for this especific issue).

I really liked the content because it contained enganging reading and interactive questions to go along with it. On the back of the magazine, it comes with an activity that students can either solve on their own or in a small group. These questions are related to the information given inside, so students are working on comprehension skills!

The monthly set also 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. 
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, you also get online access to the magazine! In there, you can find the reading issue, and it has a feature where it reads out loud! How great is that feature for your kiddos?! In addition, there are enganging videos (related to the reading), games, and even printables!

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

  1. I will use it with my English native speakers to teach them Spanish academic content.

  2. I would like to get these because they would be available in Spanish and English with the same information. They would be used for Reading and possibly centers-which could cover LA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. What a wonderful find -Thank you for the information and opportunity.
    Bilingual products are difficult to find so these are GOLD!

  3. I would LOVE to get the Scholastic packet because it provides non-fiction information in a meaningful and engaging way. My students will be able to learn more vocabulary in Spanish and it integrates different subjects along. I like to discuss the Big print out during carpet time and work on the activities and online features during centers and/or teacher table.

  4. I would love it and use it for my reading centers and my small groups . Specially for my low one in the Spanish Language since I teach dual=language. Since my school have lower resources we would benefit from it.
