    Which One?

    I teach 4th grade and have tried both. I began using TFK and swithed to SN. I have found that TFK gives more in depth stories that SN. SN gives snipets, compared to TFK, of the current events. TFK also has other books they send you throughout the year that are very helpful for using nonfiction in your classroom. I find that because TFK is associated with Time magazine, they cover the stories better. It is also good to compare TFK with Time. I switched back to TFK this year. If you find that the materials are too hard, as I did my second year teaching, I ordered the primary edition. It was just as helpful, but the kids could read it on their own. I say TFK.
