My students need magazines to help learn how to navigate reading an informative text in a Science classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My fifth grade scientists are entering into an academic environment that is rigorous, loving, challenging, and full of diversity. Students will spend this year focusing on all aspects of science, from earth science to physical science. They will need to learn as much information about these standards as possible to advance their studies.
The fifth graders at SCA are eager to explore science in all of its glory.
Beyond the typical Tennessee state standards, my students are willing to dive into learning about coding, engineering, agriculture, etc. All of this will expand their capacity for critical thinking throughout their collegiate career.
My students have dignity in their work and they are willing to learn new material.
The materials that are being requested will make a difference in my classroom because it will give my students a chance to read about different topics that we may not have a chance to cover in the everyday curriculum. Nonfiction reading not only helps students develop research skills and the ability to read complex texts, it helps build the background knowledge shown to play a factor in students’ success in content area reading later in their education.
If the materials (SuperScience and TIME for Kids) are purchased they will be beneficial because they are highly visual and designed to engage and welcome all readers.
This is especially helpful and useful when teaching ten year olds how to read about different topics in a Science classroom. Magazines have been successful in reaching visual learners and students who require additional language support. When I look at the research, this makes me think about all of our English Language Learners and how this project will give them a second chance to understand a complex topic.
