Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach fourth grade in an ethnically diverse, Reading First school. The majority of my students are bilingual.

My students need to conceptualize a broader view of the world. Too many of them are not aware of what is going on in the world outside of their community. They need to make connections between themselves and other people throughout the world.

In order to facilitate this much needed process, they need to read the news in magazines. Therefore, an individual subscription for Times For Kids magazine is needed for each student. It has world and social problems on a level that the children will more readily understand. The magazine also has additional maps and graphs to help them locate the places they read about. This magazine will also lead to more lively and meaningful discussions in the classroom.

Your help will ensure that my students have a broader sense of the world. It will give them the opportunity to let them know other people in the world have similar issues. Further, I will be able to use the magazines to bring the outside world closer to my students.
