My students need individual copies of each month's Storyworks magazine issues to use in our classroom for reading, language, and writing activities.
Think of the excitement you feel when a magazine cover really piques your interest. You can hardly wait to turn the pages and devour the article! Now imagine that half the article is missing because the much-read periodical has a torn or missing page. Our collection of magazines is worn out!
Our Title 1 school was built in 1908; our teacher's dad went to high school here!
Now it's an elementary school with more than 600 students. We want to understand people and places outside of our rural South Georgia community, so we look at video clips and read about other people and places. Many of us have never been to big cities, climbed mountains, trekked a dessert, or dipped our feet in salt water. Reading magazines like Storyworks helps us relate with other folks and get new ideas. Our parents raise us to have good manners, respect adults, show compassion, and think about the future. They hope we will become innovative adults who will bring jobs and improvements to our farming area.
Storyworks magazines offer a great "bang for your buck" because the hard-copy subscription includes many video links that enrich students' experiences with the articles we read. Each issue includes several thought-provoking articles that are of high interest to students. Each issue includes a lesson in poetry, a debate, and lessons in vocabulary, writing, and grammar. Class subscriptions include activity resources: activity sheets, mind maps, quizzes, and writing contests which students may enter with each issue. Storyworks includes resources for me to include ELL or Special Needs students in the regular education class.
When each excited student is able to take his/her issue home to share with family members, the child is building confidence, the community is being educated, and the family bond is being strengthened.
When special needs students have the resources they need to successfully participate in a regular education classroom, all students benefit as we grow communities of learners and nurture compassionate human beings.
