It's TIME to Make Reading Fun and Relevant!

My students need TIME for Kids for more exposure to current, relevant information that's written on their levels of understanding.

My Students

My school is located in one of the lower income areas of my city. Almost 45% students receive free or reduced price lunch. 32% of the students are Caucasian, 49% are African American, and the remaining percentage is a multitude of ethnicities from all over the world.

Quite a few of my students don't get a lot of homework help, and several still don't have internet or a computer.

The majority of them also don't have a big selection of books at home. Thankfully, many take advantage of our beautiful public libraries, our school library, and our classroom library.

I've taught my students the importance of taking care of what we have, & keeping a lookout for things we need. This past year, in addition to the school wide book swap, we held a classroom book swap. Peers shared with each other to cover those without books to swap so that everyone could join in on the fun.

These kids have the potential to be anything they want to be. It just takes time to get them to believe it for themselves.

My Project

I believe my students will be able to find connections to the text easier when it is written on a level they can understand. The weekly magazine articles will keep students up to date with things happening in the world around them without scaring them. A weekly print magazine leaflet to send home with all my students will allow them to be surrounded by more, accessible reading materials. I believe access to the TIME magazine articles will also help to shape my students to be the awesome readers I know they can be. I look forward to seeing my student's excitement and joy when they receive their own personal TIME kids magazine every week.
