Exploring the World, Without Leaving the Room
My students need 32 subscriptions each to Time for Kids and SuperScience magazines to enrich our collection of informational texts.
Fourth graders are expected to read complicated nonfiction texts dealing with social studies and science. However, many of our classroom nonfiction books are out of date and not at the right reading level. Help my students engage in rich nonfiction texts by sparking their interest.
I teach 4th grade at an urban, high need public school in California.
We are a Title I school with a large population of ESL students. Many students have parents who are in the Coast Guard and others who live in transitional housing for the homeless. The vast majority of my students qualifies for free or reduced rate lunch. For many of my students, school is the only stable place, where they can feel safe in a consistent and caring environment.
My students need class copies of Time for Kids and SuperScience to enrich our collection of informational texts. These magazines are written at an appropriate grade level for my students, and the beautiful photos make them very attractive to my less-than-eager readers. The magazines and correlating activities are aligned with Common Core State Standards for reading and writing. Reading informational texts is an essential skill for school and adult life.
In addition, having nice new materials every week will show these students that they are cared for, and that the larger world is invested in their learning success!
I hope that you'll consider donating to my classroom. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to discuss current events with my students with material that's at their reading level.
