Engaging Minds with Magazines

My students need a variety magazine subscriptions, including Ask, Appleseed, National Geographic Kids and Zoobooks, to get excited about real world reading with "just right" levels and engaging content.

My Students

Do you remember having a magazine subscription and the anticipation of the new edition arriving? Or sitting in the doctor's office and enjoying a Highlights for Children magazine. My students have not yet found that enthusiasm for recreational reading, but magazines can be the perfect spark!

Right now I have a small class of 14 third graders.

There are 8 girls and 6 boys. About 70% come from homes that primarily speak another language. Our school has greater than 90% of students on free and reduced lunch. Although they have a range of academic abilities, all students are excited about coming to school and learning new things.

My Project

Magazines made for kids are a great way to engage young minds in real world reading. There are interesting topics, current issues and eye-catching graphics. Magazines can provide a spark of interest in a reluctant reader that a book may not. The articles are short, interesting, and appropriate for students. Many magazines use a various text structures and text features so they make excellent passages for working with nonfiction. Students will be excited about sharing the new things they learn in the magazines. The variety of magazine subscritptions I am requesting will be used for paired reading and independent reading. The more ways to get students interested in reading, the more we can ignite their imagination and create the problem solvers of tomorrow.

Your donation to this project will help me provide my students with an exciting new way to enjoy reading.

As each new magazine edition arrives, it will be like opening their eyes to new possibilities.
