Mrs. Englebert from Philadelphia PA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Exploring Our World with Scholastic Magazine!

My students need the weekly Scholastic News magazine to dive deeper into various Science, Social Studies, and Literacy themes that we will be studying this upcoming school year, as well as some other important classroom necessities.

My Students

My first graders come from a low income neighborhood in the School District of Philadelphia. Each student receives free breakfast and lunch each day. They are an amazing group of kids who are full of energy and love to have fun! They are very caring, and love to help one another whenever possible.

Students in my room are on various academic levels with a wide range of abilities.

Some are starting to read independently while some are still working on letter identification and sounds. Even with the wide range of abilities, I have found that my students love to support one another throughout the academic day. They never tease or make any of the other students feel bad about what they are working on. Instead, they offer to help and teach one another which is so encouraging to me as their teacher. I love seeing them work together and grow each day!

My Project

Scholastic has a wonderful magazine made just for students called Scholastic News. When our project gets funded, each of my students will receive a colorful, informative magazine each week - I know they will love them! Each magazine has a weekly theme that correlates to what we are learning in Science and Social Studies. Some of this years themes include: the four seasons, hibernation, life cycles, insects, holidays, animal habitats, and much more! These magazines are great resources that are written on level for first graders to understand and be able to read independently. After working on the magazine in class, students will be able to take them home to share with their families. This is a great way to bride the gap between school and home.

When our project gets fully funded, we will not only receive the Scholastic News Magazine, but we would also be getting a class set of clip boards, a classroom mailbox, and colorful stools for our guided reading table!

The clip boards would allow for us to expand our writing activities away from our desks, so students have something to lean on as they write. We would be able to easily complete Write the Room activities and even take our clipboards with us as we explore outside! The mailboxes would allow for easy distribution of papers and homework folders while teaching the kids responsibility as they would have to check their mailboxes daily for homework, graded assignments, and other important papers. Lastly, the colorful stools would allow for a flexible seating option while students work in small groups. This would allow them to choose a stool or a regular chair while working with me at our guided reading table. When funded, these resources will be greatly beneficial to our daily school activities!
