Which Magazine?

I am trying to decide what ELA magazine to use in my classroom. I have looked at Scholastic News and Story Works. Any ideas from 5th grade teachers that have used one of these magazines or any other?

I think it depends on what you want more of. Storyworks is more ELA and Schol.News is more NF with some SS thrown in. SToryworks has a play, a poem, writing, grammar, fiction and NF. I love it and prefer that one.It does have some wkshts w each section , if you need them and some of the stories have a short video that has additional or some extra background info.

I love Storyworks - offers audio recordings and videos, paired texts and many more activities.

We've used this magazine for 2 years and our scores have soared. It's great for teaching close reading with fiction and nonfiction.
