My Students

As members of a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I know that they all have the potential to succeed, if given the right materials and opportunities.

My students are amazing.

They are creative, they are curious, and they are lovers of reading and writing. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I want to focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I hope to instill in each of my students that, although they can't control their home lives, they can control what goes on in the classroom. Their success is dependent upon them believing in themselves. They will always know that I am their number one supporter and that I believe they can and will be successful.

My Project

Our fourth graders have limited access to various texts. They see only books and textbooks all day. Storyworks magazines keep the kids engaged and provide them with a nonfiction article, a fiction piece, a play, a debate, grammar practice, current events, and more. These would broaden our students’ knowledge,vocabulary, and experiences in one magazine.

Because we are in a high poverty area, most of our fourth graders are unable to afford magazines of their own; our school is a Title I School, so we have limited funds for these magazines.

We fourth grade teachers want to get these in our students’hands in order to show them the variety of texts and genres and hopefully encourage them to expand their current reading.
