About Us


Scholastic News Edition 1 is a weekly nonfiction print and digital magazine for first-grade classrooms. We use the most-taught science, social studies, and safety topics to create a multimedia curriculum. We focus on building content knowledge, vocabulary, and early reading skills like concepts of print. Our magazines get more challenging throughout the school year as children become better readers. Our young readers see themselves in our pages because the magazine reflects the rich diversity of today’s classrooms.  
Our monthly print resources include:

Teachers’ BIG Issues to use for whole-class instruction

Matching little issues for every child to take home

Teaching guides with standards correlations and lesson ideas

Our online resources include:

Nonfiction videos

Digital issues with Text-to-Speech

A two-year archive of Scholastic News Edition 1

Vocabulary words with photos and definitions

Skill-building games

Printable activity pages

All digital issues, videos, and printables in Spanish

Lower-Lexile versions of the issues, starting in February
