My Students

Imagine you are in second grade and that in third grade you will have to take a huge state test that measures how successful you are in school. Now, imagine that you have to take that test on a tablet, which your parents can’t afford, and your classroom has limited access to. How successful would you be?

My students are brand new pencils ready to be sharpened with knowledge.

They have so much potential to fill this world with their abilities. They want more than anything, to be successful. Unfortunately, my students struggle with reality. Many don't have a consistent parent. Many have to worry about where they will sleep at night, who will be home when they get home and if they will have food for dinner.

I work at a school where eighty-eight percent of our students qualify for the free or reduced price lunch program. Over three-fourths of my twenty-five students come from homes where English is not the primary language. The odds are stacked against them. They need every possible advantage I can give them to help them be successful in this technology driven world.

My Project

Scholastic News and Spin have always been exciting and engaging learning tools to help students feel connected to the world outside of their communities. These nonfiction magazines will be used to ask questions, make connections, and summarize the informative texts. My hope is that the information in these magazines will spark my students' imaginations and further discussions and projects will take place.

Scholastic News and Scholastic Spin will help keep students excited about reading nonfiction articles as well as keep them up-to-date with current events and science concepts.

By funding this project, you will be helping me give the opportunity to present engaging, meaningful, nonfiction content that is exciting to read. This will help give struggling readers confidence while giving advanced readers information that they can use to build knowledge on related science and social studies topics.
