My Students

I teach at a wonderful Title I school in Franklin Special School District. Over half of our 3rd grade students receive free or reduced-price lunch. We have students of all races, economic backgrounds, and family structures. Almost half of our 3rd grade class are bilingual in Spanish and English! I have a wonderful class of 15 bright, and eager students. We love our classroom and call it our home away from home!

Many of our students receive fuel bags with food for the weekend, and we have wonderful nonprofits in place to help with other needs as they may arise.

These students deserve nothing but the best as they continue their education towards finding their passion in life.

My Project

Giving students a new "Time for Kids" magazine each and every week that would be their very own would be such a great way to motivate them!

We are in a Title One school where many students do not have reading materials at home.

They are not exposed to many current events or material with the high-interest level they need. Many of these students are inquisitive and curious about the world around them and soak up new material like sponges when it is presented in an interesting format.

"Time for Kids" magazine could be used in many aspects of everyday teaching. They would be great practice for fluency time, where students are practicing reading out loud smoothly and clearly. During Differentiated Reading Instruction, students would be working on specific skills they need to hone, such as summarizing, finding the main idea, or even answering questions. Since this magazine covers current events as well as science topics, it would be used in those content areas as well. This would be a resource that would impact each and every student on a daily basis. In addition, by ordering a couple more subscriptions than there are students, extras can be kept in the classroom library for future students as well as continued used by myself. Time also provides an interactive digital edition to be used whole class and web access to supplemental materials that can enhance lessons taught using this resource.

Motivation is a key factor in children learning.

They need to know the relevance of the information or skill they are learning or practicing. "Time for Kids" would provide that motivation!
