I am requesting English and Spanish weekly reader magazine subscriptions for the children in my classroom. The manner in which we would be able to use magazines in my classroom is much different than in which we are able to use books. With books, children learn to be careful- they learn how to handle them with care and must return them to the classroom to share. Magazines, on the other hand, are not made to last forever. Children could read them, take them home to keep, or even cut them apart for art projects or letter-finding activities. The Children’s Literacy Foundation reports that 61% of children from low-income households do not have books in their homes; therefore, a classroom weekly reader magazine subscription would guarantee something new to read at school and at home each week. According to a 2011 report by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, a child who isn't proficient in reading by third grade is four times more likely to drop out of high school than a proficient reader. In Michigan, less than half of third-graders are proficient readers by the end of third grade. In order to build literacy skills, it is important for my students to be exposed to a variety of types of print. A classroom weekly reader magazine subscription would give my students fresh literacy material and build excitement for reading.
