My Students

My students are hard-working and inspired to make their ambitions come true. Like many school districts, we lack funds to be able to provide students with the materials they need to be successful in the 21st century. Third graders get excited when they see their success with different materials, resources and manipulatives. To see their faces light up as they are figuring out new concepts and life is exciting.

Teachers at my school are motivated by the success of all students both academically and in preparing them for life.

Our school currently serves K-3 students with rigorous academics and beginning next fall 2018-2019 we will serve students K-5. I am a part of a teacher culture that is driven to inspire the minds of young people.

These materials will allow my students to meet their fullest potential.

My Project

I am asking for 26 subscriptions to Scholastic News Magazine. With these magazine subscriptions, my students will be able to collaborate about current events. They will also learn from a different genre and text structure that isn't available in the classroom. Throughout the day my students will be able to meet with partners, small groups and whole group to discuss, critique and write reactions to the events described in the magazines.

Young readers should have access to many types of genres and text structures to become better readers, collaborate and grow a love for reading.

Included with the subscriptions, myself and the students have access to the Scholastic website. This is effective because it allows students to have the text read to them if it is too difficult, watch videos of the main article, and complete reading task including vocabulary that goes along with the articles.

Your donation to this project will provide students the opportunity to learn and know about current events and how at young ages they can make a difference in their own communities.
