My Students

My students attend a Title I school with 100% of students receiving free breakfast and lunch. Our students live in a high poverty and high crime area. Some of them live in shelters, motels, foster homes and most of them live in apartment buildings.

Many of our families have multiple minimum wage jobs and it is a luxury to use their hard earn money to buy technology or even books.

Providing food and paying their bills is their number one priority. Despite all of that, our students find a safe haven at our school. They come to school with a big smile on their faces and a hunger to learn. They love school, and they get excited about learning.

My Project

Most of my students are struggling readers and it is very difficult for them to find a good and interesting nonfiction text that is at their reading level. By having the TIME For Kids magazine subscription my students will have access to a weekly high interest leveled magazine as well as access to the digital edition that can be accessed from any electronic device. These leveled TIME For Kids magazines will motivate my students to want to read. They will not feel confused or frustrated. They will gain confidence in their reading abilities and want to keep feeding their hungry brains with new knowledge.
