Help Us Get Weekly Reader!!! : )

The cost of 25 subscriptions to Weekly Reader Grade 3 from Weekly Reader is $150, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I am a third-grade teacher in East New York at P.S 345, a shortage school in Brooklyn. About 98% of our students receive free lunch, which means that their income is below the poverty line. The majority of the students in our school are below grade level. However, they are eager to come to school and learn. They are highly motivated and want to learn despite the many difficulties that surround them. At the present time, about 40% of my students have a learning disability. My students enjoy learning to read. Unfortunately, they are far behind level. I would like a subscription to Weekly Reader. Weekly Reader is a children's newspaper. I feel these are wonderful resources for keeping children up to date on the activities happening in the world around them. I feel this would be an excellent source of non-fiction reading. The stories are a great way to teach comprehension and encourage critical thinking skills. It would also be a good source for character building skills as they read about people from all over the world and how they deal with the positive and negative events of their lives. I was suprised when I showed the children the sample copy. I could not believe that most of the children have never had the opportunity of using a resource like Weekly Reader. When I have tried to talk about events that are happening around the world, they have no knowledge. I feel this would be a wonderful resource for my children. As they explore the world around them, they will learn and enjoy reading stories about people from other parts of the world as well as in their own country. My class would benefit greatly from weekly magazines like Weekly Reader. This would allow students to read non-fiction material on a weekly basis. These magazines are full of great materials that get kids excited about reading. Having a classroom set of these magazines would not only benefit my English as a second language students, but the whole class. The other third grade teachers and I tend to share materials. These magazines would be used in different third grade classrooms. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration!! :)
