My students need a classroom set of weekly TIME For Kids Magazine to help build non-fiction reading skills while staying up to date on current events.
The world is constantly changing and our classroom needs to be well aware of things happening in society today.
My fourth grade students are eager to learn and always asking questions.
Our school integrates the arts and music with common core standards, which helps the students learn in a way fitting for them. Each student is a unique individual that brings creativity to the classroom.
Our school opened up last year (Fall 2012). This is the second year of our school and budgets for the classroom are tight, so it makes it hard to help students having supplemental reading materials. I am requesting a subscription to TIME For Kids Magazine. A subscription to TIME For Kids Magazine would help my students be aware of current events while increasing their reading skills. These students need to be aware of things going on around the world, and there is no better way to do that than to engage in reading non-fiction text.
This project is important because you will be helping students find a way to connect to reading.
By reading non-fiction text students are not only actively learning, but they are also making connections to themselves. Non-fiction text will help make a difference in students' lives by helping prepare them for their future. It can also help inspire them to make a difference.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you.
