My Students

I have 30 wonderful and bright students. I work in a neighborhood school in Chicago. I teach ESL and special education students language arts, math, science, social studies, health, and a zillion life lessons a day. It is an extremely diverse area and the students in our school are from various backgrounds, making our class a melting pot of ethnicities. There are six different languages spoken in my classroom, and it represents a wide variety of individuals with different social and economic backgrounds.

The school where I work is great.

The principal/staff all work together to benefit student learning. I have been working at this school for sixteen years. Unfortunately, the school lacks funds to purchase necessary supplies that are greatly needed. The school cannot provide the funds needed to purchase materials since we face tough budget cuts this year. As an educator, I continually try to find what will be the best for my students. This at times is very difficult, but can be accomplished. My school would be able to purchase materials for students, but unfortunately there are no funds available at this time.

My Project

I am requesting 30 subscriptions to Scholastic News magazine to learn about current events. I have requested a class set so my students can learn about the importance of current events around the world. These resources have proved to me to be very useful in teaching current events.

Second graders are eager to learn about events that are taking place around them.

If they have the opportunity to read and learn about these events, it will increase their knowledge. Scholastic also has great activities within their weekly magazines. In the classroom, we will work on these activities in small groups for better understanding. Also, we can have lots of class discussions that will promote the ability for students to share with others what they have learned. I will pair English language learner students with other students that speak the same language so that they can also participate in the activities.I would love to have the opportunity to be able to share this great magazine with my students this year.

Your help donating to this project will ensure that my students learn about the importance of current events around the world. Also, these magazines teach about the different cultures in the world. This helps students learn and understand other students in their school. This magazine is a great learning tool for teachers to help students advance in their knowledge of current events.
