Classroom Library

My students need 25 weekly subscriptions to Scholastic News and Time for Kids magazines to help motivate them toward reading and writing.

My Students

"The ability to read awoke inside me some long dormant craving of being alive." Autobiography by Malcom X. 1964. Through reading a variety of texts, my students will gain more knowledge, discover the joy and love of learning which empowers them to be the future leaders of America.

This year, my second grade class is a mixture of ethnicity and economic backgrounds as well as learning abilities and styles.

There are students who are already able to read chapter books and are able to work on writing paragraphs independently. Then there are also a few who are still struggling with reading fluency, and comprehension due to limited vocabulary. However, they are so eager and motivated to learn. We are one of a few LAUSD schools that have become a distinguished charter school.

My Project

The Scholastic News and Time for Kids magazines will be used in the classroom and at home to practice reading , researching, and writing. First, the students will read the magazines and relate to the themes that they are learning in their reading curriculum. Second, they will use the magazines to discuss the themes with their partners in class. Then, they will bring the magazines home to do a research project on a related topic. Finally, they will be scrutinizing at the mechanics and grammar of the text to help them understand how writings are being done.

These magazines are crucial to the students' learning.

In addition to motivating the students to become life-long readers and writers, they also provide the chance for the students to read and openly discuss about real interesting world topics. "The greatest gift is a passion for reading." Elizabeth Hardwick. So please give the gift of love. Help empower the students by donating magazines for our class.
