Keeping Our Nose in the News

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I would love for my students to receive Weekly Readers. Weekly Readers are bright, bold little magazines that would bring Current Events to life in our classroom. My students are so inquisitive and would enjoy being up-to-date on things that are happening around the world. The ScienceSpin magazine that could be ordered along with it would make for an awesome addition to our Science Curriculum. I teach Math, Science, and Writing at a rural NC school. The funds are scarce, and we cannot reasonably ask parents to send in $6 to cover this. Our school is 79% free/reduced lunch but we don't let that stop us. We work hard to raise student achievement and create a positive atmosphere for our kids. My students would feel so important and special if they received these magazines. Where some of them have no idea about current events this would help create a group of students that would want to give back and contribute.
