Hooray! This project is fully funded

I would like to subscribe to 6 terrific magazines for our school library. We have a new library, and could really use some diversity in materials! I am the librarian at an 800 student elementary school, serving preK to 5th grade. Our students are English language learners, and most read below grade level. They can be overwhelmed and frustrated by chapter books. Quality magazines act as a stepping stone for low readers, with short achievable articles, lots of pictures/graphics (perfect for ESL readers), and are often about popular topics to attract reluctant readers. Students would be able to read the magazines during reading time in the library, and check out past issues to take home. They will love the exciting articles about sports, science, or animals, and will gain confidence in their reading ability! Don't you remember those great magazines like Ranger Rick and Highlights? I want my students to experience them, too!
