We want to be non-fiction gurus! By adding a subscription to Scholastic News and Science Spin to our classroom this will help us become more familiar with real life things such as life cycles, weather, etc. This will enrich our classroom and keep us up-to-date on what's happening in the real world.
Our school is very rural and serves a low income area with over 60% of our students who receive free or reduced meals.
The technology, supplies, and materials we have to work with are very limited. Although our supplies are limited, my students are still very eager and excited about learning each day. It warms my heart to see my students get so excited about reading and learning and I definitely want to keep them engaged and offer them with the resources they need.
I have high hopes that I will be able to offer them more resources to use in our classroom by using DonorsChoose. I'm very excited about this project and look forward to it hopefully being funded!
Scholastic News and Science Spin are a great classroom resource because it allows for each student to have their own personal copy. Having their own copy allows for them to highlight, underline, and write in their copy as needed. When we finish with an issue, they are then able to take it home and share with their families all about what they learned.
This subscription to Scholastic News and Science Spin will help me cover many of the required first grade standards. We will use this subscription to do the following things: know and use various text features, identify the main topic and retell key details in a text, ask and answer questions about key details in a text, describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text, and so much more!
We do not currently have science or social studies textbooks and our access to non-fiction text is very limited. This subscription will allow for students to have access to more non-fiction text.
A donation to this project will help to ensure that all students in my classroom have a chance to get their hands on all types of literature.
This subscription will allow me to offer them grade level reading material that is about real people and real life events. The beautiful photographs, awesome diagrams, and cool captions in each issue always leave us wanting to know MORE. Please help me offer my 2015-2016 students with Scholastic News and Science Spin to help enrich our learning.
