My students need the classroom magazine "Storyworks" to supplement our reading program and to make sure they are getting practice with the common core reading standards.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Students now need so much more than ever to be successful in reading. The classroom magazine I am requesting has it all from non-fiction to poetry to plays. Students also get much needed experience in writing and grammar.
We are a school in a suburb of St.
Paul. My students come from diverse cultural backgrounds and diverse social-economic backgrounds as well. There are 26 regular education students and 4 students that are in an autism center-based classroom. Those 4 students come to the classroom for reading every day. All my students have a wide range of interests, talents and reading levels.
I can't say enough about how the students love using magazines as a resource. It ensures that all students have access to the common core standards. It uses interactive resources for the learning styles of each child. It provides current non-fiction reading materials. The stories are relevant to the lives of my students.
This is one thing I can do for my students to ensure they are getting the quality materials they need to compete with schools that have more funding and resources than we do.
We are constantly looking for materials to meet the needs of our ever changing population and making sure these materials are current.
