About Us


Scholastic News Edition 2 is a weekly nonfiction print and digital magazine for second-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 nonfiction reading skills. 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:

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 2

Online access to Scholastic News Edition 1, 3, 4, and 5/6

Vocabulary words with photos and definitions

Skill-building games

Printable activity pages

All digital issues, videos, and printables in Spanish
