My students need 30 subscriptions to both Time for Kids and Weekly Reader, to support reading development and our Social Studies curriculum throughout the year.
This project expired on February 20, 2011.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
I want to show my kids that there is so much more to this world than the neighborhoods we live in. Children need to learn about civic responsibility and community and how it affects them and the world around them.
I teach 6th graders at a 5-6 Intermediate Academy.
Our district recently reorganized our schools and we have only been open since this August. We are a Title One school with a high number of students on free or reduced lunch. We want to make our first year successful; however, we lack a lot of funding to get the materials we desire.
I have literacy stations set up to practice different skills. The station that needs the most support right now is my Newspaper station. During this station I want students to have access to current events around the world. Time for Kids and Weekly Reader are both great sources of news for my students because they offer news on levels that interest kids and are easier to read.
By reading news stories from around the world, I hope to motivate my students' interest in topics outside of our community.
I want my students to become motivated in learning about current events and becoming a part of our world.
