My students need a class set of Scholastic News 5/6 to increase their access to quality, relevant nonfiction text and learn about healthy lifestyles!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Who wants to read black and white copies of outdated information, when exciting, colorful editions of Scholastic News are to be found? In my class, my students crave such an interesting source of information to learn about being healthy!
I am a fifth grade teacher at a school in a suburban community near Atlanta.
My students are diverse both in ethnicity and economic background. Because of budget cuts, it is difficult to provide extras such as magazines in order to stimulate students' interest in current events.
I would love to have Scholastic News Magazine for my 5th grade class. I want my students to know that there is a world outside of their little community. I will be using the magazines weekly to encourage the students to discuss and debate the articles and to enjoy reading about the many interesting places, events and people in their world. These magazines will also help with reading fluency and comprehension skills which we are always trying to improve! The Common Core standards require students to access and utilize non-fiction text. Not only will the students receive a copy of the magazines, but they will be provided with access to an interactive website from Scholastic that provides games, additional information, and lively videos.
Help transform my students knowledge of the world around them and improve their literacy.
With your assistance, they can discover new horizons, navigate often difficult text and topics with ease, and explore healthy lifestyle options.
