My Students

With so much emphasis on testing, our school district budgets time for teaching only reading, math and writing. It is frustrating, because students have such a longing for science and social studies. My solution to this is to teach the three "R's" using Scholastic News.

My students are the best part of my job.

I learn so much from them because they come from all over the world. The vast majority of them are from economically disadvantaged homes. A few are recent refugees to the country. Many others are from different countries but do not hold refugee status, and most students in the classroom speak two or more languages. Our school is a neighborhood school, with a lot of low income housing. This year I have more than a few students who are charged with helping to get siblings dressed and to school. Some have supportive parents who can be there for them, some have parents who work two jobs and still struggle, while still others have parents who are battling drug and alcohol addiction. A small number of my students are homeless or are in foster care. The most important job I have is to create a safe and stable place for them where they will grow to love learning.

My Project

I remember getting Scholastic News issues when I was in elementary school. I loved reading them, and was always looking forward to the next issue. At the beginning of the year, my students make All About Me posters and year after year, the majority of them list science as their favorite subject. So much of what we teach now is drill and kill reading, writing and math, and unfortunately there is no time allotted in our schedule by the district to teach social studies or science. I really want to spark my students' interest in school by integrating social studies, science and current events via Scholastic News, into reading, writing and math.

Having Scholastic News delivered to our classroom will help me teach my students about the world around them and how they fit into it now and in the future.

I want to deliver the topics they are already interested in, which are in Scholastic News, to build their reading, math, and writing skills. Your support is so very appreciated by my students and me. Thank you for the time you took to review this projec
