Learning With Magazines ~ Hurricane Sandy School ~

My students need 28 subscriptions to Time for Kids magazine.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

What can be more motivating than a high-interest, kid-friendly, colorful, vibrant magazine titled TIME For Kids?! Kids absolutely love using this periodical as a way to learn about the world around them!

Our school is located in a low sociol economic area in New Jersey that was hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.

With a parent's permission, I uploaded a picture of my student's home which is currently unlivable. This is one example of a student who lost everything, including school supplies. Although students are motivated and want to learn, many times we do not have the funding to support activities or to buy materials that students need for success. Often times, students begin the year without the basic supplies that they need.

My Project

The resource that we are requesting is a subscription to TIME For Kids. TIME For Kids is a weekly classroom news magazine that motivates kids to read! Issues cover a wide range of real-world topics kids love to learn about - and it's the best nonfiction text as well as a powerful teaching tool!

This project will not only help my students meet the rigorous demands of the Common Core Standards but it will also help them become successful in literacy, social studies and science.

Thank you for considering our proposal!
