My Students

Friday is current event day in my fifth grade social studies classroom. My students love to read about what's going on in the world using Scholastic News magazines. These magazines not only provide students with information in the news, but teach important reading skills necessary for today's world.

I teach a diverse group of energetic fifth graders who come with an equally diverse knowledge base.

Many of our families, along with our schools, have been hit hard during this economic depression. We don't always have funds for providing learning materials for our classrooms.

My Project

My students love to learn about current events from the Scholastic News. Many of the articles are related to kids their own age. Scholastic News provides informational text written in a kid-friendly way that engages student interest. They can't wait to read the news each week. We also enjoy playing the interactive games from the website. Along with improving our reading skills, we learn about events around the world. These news magazines help us meet the Common Core Standards in reading and social studies.

Your donations will improve student achievement and change the lives of kids.

You will be making learning fun and exciting for students in my classroom. Without your donations, we wouldn't be able to offer this exciting learning material for the students.
