I teach at a Title I school where over 75% of our students qualify for free and reduced-priced lunches. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Many face a home life without both parents. Because we live in such a rural area, in some cases, the parent/parents are unable to find full-time employment.
Don't let life's circumstances fool you-my students are bright and eager to learn!
They are ready to explore the world around them, even though their world may be different than other students from more affluent neighborhoods.
These children are our future, and I don't want their circumstances and our rural school's declining budget to define who they are and what they are capable of accomplishing in life.
My students will benefit greatly from these subscriptions. Each student will receive their own weekly issue of each magazine to study, highlight and take home at the end of each week. The articles are excellent sources of grade level informational text which will help develop their reading skills too! There is also a website subscription that is included so that my students can independently explore the issue/subject of the week independently online as well.
Because of the high cost of curriculum, our district has not been able to provide us with current books and materials for science and social studies.
I strive to make my classroom engaging and fun for my students. Studies Weekly will go a long way towards making that happen.
