I had been looking for some magazines and e-zines for my boys and found this e-zine called Spigot. A Science Magazine for kids and the classroom. Specifically designed for elementary and middle schoolers, this online, free magazine is packed with interesting information. For each article there is something called "Trickles, Teaching Guides" for each article. Here is a bit more about it:
"Trickles is written for the teacher to help make lesson planning and teaching a little bit easier. For each article, Trickles offers vocabulary words, ideas for skill and comprehension lessons, the reading level, and links to the National Standards. It's all in the spirit of "good preparation makes for a good lesson." ~ Valerie Girandola, Editor and Chief of Spigot Science Magazine
The lesson plans cover vocabulary words, comprehension and other skill suggestions. These also are in line national standards.
I subscribed to this e-zine so that my son will receive any new issues directly in his e mail box and thought this might be something to share with other who have children who enjoy learning science. I plan to keep up with the blog and new information and also check out their archived magazines also ~
Spigot's "Tap into Learning" blog is also very interesting you can find it here.
Hope you have a chance to check it out.. :)
