I am a first grade classroom teacher, working with at risk students in one of Chicago's under privileged area schools. My 25 first graders are working on a social studies project, where we are collecting current news and current event articles. The popular weekly news magazine for kids, "The Weekly Reader? is filled with informative articles, holiday events, and what's happening news locally and around the world. These newsletters have proved to be relevant, interesting, and motivating to young readers. I will use these magazines to further my students?knowledge in the social studies aspect of their curriculum. Please help my first grade students experience and learn about current news and current events locally and around the world by ordering a set of 25 weekly readers news letters, for the months of February to June for 2006.
