Building Comprehension Through Nonfiction Magazines

My students need weekly magazines to give them high interest nonfiction materials to build comprehension.

My Students

Give my students several opportunities a year to receive their own beautifully illustrated magazines that will hook them into reading current events and other nonfiction facts.

My students come from a low income urban setting.

Few students come to school with materials. They live in crowded apartments and shelters where reading materials are not a priority. Many of them prefer to be in school than home. They are absorbed by read alouds and treasure a new book. If they have a book at home it is outdated or not of the appropriate grade level. Weekly magazines would be a real treat for them.

My Project

I am requesting two magazine subscriptions for my students to build nonfiction comprehension. My students would have 24 opportunities to receive their own magazine to use for guided lessons and then to take home with them. The second subscription would be kept in the classroom library to use throughout the year. Magazines have high interest current events stories illustrated in color to peek the interest of readers.

Low poverty level student struggle on state tests particularly in the area of nonfiction.

These magazines would give students the practice they need to build comprehension of current events and nonfiction factual information. Guided lessons would be planned to build comprehension skills and strategies to prepare students for state testing.
