Help Kids Fall in Love with Reading with Weekly Readers!

My students need their own copy of the magazine Weekly Reader (once a week) and Science Spin (once a month).

My Students

"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go." Dr. Seuss said it best! Help the children in my classroom be lifetime learners who love to read various types of text!

Our elementary school houses children from kindergarten to fifth grade.

The enrollment fluctuates from year to year, but it is considered big for our school district with roughly 550-600 students. The students at our school are eligible for free lunches. Approximately 48% are Caucasian, 35% African American, and 4% Hispanic.

My Project

Weekly Reader and Science Spin are educational classroom magazines designed for children. I loved receiving this subscription when I was a child and I still do as a teacher. Most importantly, the students in my classroom look forward to "Fun Friday" because they get their own issue of the magazines. Nothing is better than seeing a child smile when it comes to reading! The magazines support technology by providing interesting video clips. For example, last year during the election, the children got to see a tour of inside the White House as well as Barack Obama and Mitt Romney throughout their years. The videos always seem to catch the children's attention and they are truly engaged in wanting to know and see more. The magazines also support and align to the newly adopted common core standards. Each child gets to take home his/her copy of the magazine each week with Weekly Reader in addition to the once per month subscription of Science Spin.

As teachers we are expected to provide children with numerous exposures to various types of text.

Unfortunately, we are not provided with many materials to do this, especially text other than the regular fiction stories. We have all heard those a hundred times. The children will fall in love with reading with Weekly Readers and Science Spin.
