TIME for Kids engages students with authentic journalism, inspires them to join the national discourse on current topics, and provides teachers with valuable resources for the classroom. TFK was founded in 1995. We offer four grade-specific editions. Edition K-1 and Edition 2 publish 28 issues per year, with magazines arriving in a monthly bundle. Each issue gets students excited about reading and helps build early literacy skills. Edition 3-4 and Edition 5-6 publish 24 weekly issues. The magazines build informational reading skills and help students better understand our complex world and become informed and active citizens.
