My Students

Do you love reading? We need appropriate reading material to spark student interest and enjoyment for reading.

We are an urban school of approximately 600 students.

We are a Title I school with more than 90% of students on free or reduced lunch. Forty-eight percent of students are English Second Language Learners. Most of their parents do not speak English. They are sweet students and want to learn more, but they lack vocabulary and are not exposed to reading English at home. Our students live in a low income community and lack resources at home. They do not have Internet access at home or books to read.

My Project

My students need Scholastic News nonfiction text to improve their reading comprehension. The Scholastic Readers and Science Spin issues will allow my students the opportunity to read nonfiction text. The students will be able to read grade level appropriate nonfiction text on current events that interest them. Students will use Scholastic magazine issues in reading centers to increase fluency and increase reading skills.

Scholastic News will spark student interest and student engagement will increase.

They will develop a love of reading that will help them be successful in school. Please donate to our classroom to help increase reading comprehension. Students will be motivated and excited to read!
