Extra! Extra! Read All About It!

Happy Earth Day!  Renee here from Fantastic First Grade Froggies.   I'm here with a throwback from my blog, enjoy.

Do you subscribe to kids magazines?  I always like them, but they are pricy, especially if you want to have a few of them for a reading group.  Sometimes, I like the topics, but there are times when I wish I could tailor the topics to what is relevant in my classroom.

I decided to try out making my own on 11 x 17 "magazine readers."  I originally made them to fit onto 11 x 17 paper and then fold in half.  I am fortunate to have access to a colored copier that will work that size paper.

But if you don't have access to that, you could also print each page onto letter size paper and staple them, or mount them onto a 12 x 18 piece of construction paper.

I also made a practice page for each article.

I had the chocolate one laying around our house and my son picked it up and started reading it.  He was excited to tell me some new info about his favorite food group...chocolate!!

The great news is that you can copy the shrink the 11 x 17 down to letter size paper and that works too!  I discovered that by accident.  I didn't select the right paper on the copy machine.  There are four magazines included each month.  Here is a glimpse of what is in the April pack, which is perfect for today.
