I LOVE using Time for Kids in my classroom!! The kids get so excited when they see the new magazines ready to be read. Sometimes, though, it's hard to find time in our daily schedule to use TFK during whole group lessons.
I use these recording sheets as a literacy station so learners still get to engage with their weekly Time for Kids magazines + I am able to use the recording sheet and their sticky notes to learn more about their reading experience.
Once students have finished their reading, they staple the half sheet to their magazine and turn it in. After I have had a change to conference with the kiddos about their notes, I send the magazine and recording sheet home with students to continue reading. Some of the students even collect the magazines!
