A beautifully designed, 16-page reading magazine specifically designed for Foundation students.
Liven up your literacy rotations with Teach Starter’s beautifully designed and highly informative magazine, What’s Buzzing?
The magazine’s content has been specifically curated for Foundation students. It uses age-appropriate vocabulary and a variety of text types to address a wide range of relevant and engaging topics. It has been designed to have articles that some Foundation students can engage with on their own, along with articles that can be read by the teacher as a whole class activity.
Some of the highlights of this issue include:
- “My Dog Max” (narrative)
- “Community Helpers: Police Officer” (profile)
- “5 Fun Facts About Ants” (information)
- “Little Tree” (poem)
- “Where is My Hat?” (comic).
Also included is a comprehensive list of suggested activity ideas for each article. These activities can be used after you have read the magazine as a class or in group work activities.
