Routines for helping to create a
positive learning environment
Routines give unique learners a predictable structure and are such an important part of the day. Many News‑2‑You educators center their morning meetings around Today’s Weather and Breaking News, using the engaging, interactive content to welcome students to the day and get them participating right from the start! Both features are also accessible to individual students when they log in, offering a great option for remote learning and a perfect way for students to explore on their own.
Get interactive with Today’s Weather
Launch your morning routine by guiding students through a lively discussion of the day of the week, date, and current weather conditions, and then students dress a character for the day based on their weather observations.
Stay current with Breaking News
These constantly updated daily news articles are great for starting conversations! Each World, Sports, and Entertainment story can be presented both with and without symbol support and is accompanied by review questions for checking understanding. The Breaking News articles are completely searchable and often contain links to videos that can either be shown in a whole-group setting or viewed by students on their own.
Readers learn about news from across the world and even deep into outer space. Best of all, World News articles are linked to Google Maps™ so students can actually see the places where the news is happening.
From professional and college sports, to Little League champions, the Iditarod race, and the record-breaking accomplishments of gymnast Simone Biles, each sports article is fun, informative, and a great discussion starter.
Students love the stories about current movies, Harry Potter, the Kids Choice Awards™, and many other topics connected to their lives outside of school.
