Dear TIME for Kids User,

Our team is committed to providing you with the same high-interest, rigorous informational texts that you and your students love. As the world of education evolves, we are dedicated to evolving with it, so that we can continue to meet your instructional needs.

That’s why this year, we are excited to share brand-new tools, resources, and features for your classroom use. As we make these enhancements to TIME for Kids, some features will be immediately available, while others will be available later this school year.

The following features are scheduled for a release later this school year:

  • Your Digital Account: We will be adding the ability for you to create accounts for yourself and your students, then manage settings to identify student reading levels and easily create groups and classes. This will allow you to easily assign articles at appropriate reading levels to each student and with your teacher account, access digital instructional resources. For now, you and your students have full access to our student edition at www.timeforkids.com. The same articles you know and love will be published every week. Later this fall, we will supplement the print teaching resources you receive each week with digital teaching resources available through your teacher account.
  • Assessments: We are building a brand new assessment tool with formative and summative assessments embedded into our articles, with access to real-time data. Today, use our content to familiarize your student with our weekly articles and stories. Later this fall, you will be able to gauge student learning with these embedded assessments.
  • Interactive Whiteboard: We will be adding interactive whiteboard functionality so that you can project and interact with the digital magazine while teaching from TIME for Kids.

And much, much more! We are busily designing a full suite of resources for you and your students and can’t wait to share them with you!

If you have any questions or concerns about your subscription, please contact us at 800-777-8600.

Warmly,

April Croy
Academic and Curriculum Director
