My Students

The students in my central Illinois classroom are three, four, and five years old.

My little learners are eager and enthusiastic about coming to school to learn through play.

All have been identified as "at-risk" through a developmental screening. They each have a need in one or more of the following areas: language, cognitive, motor, and social skills.

Many of my students come from low-income households and live in an urban setting with few opportunities to experience nature. For most, this is their first school experience. Many have limited access to educational books and activities at home, and a few are English Language Learners.

My Project

By supporting this project, you will help us provide 32 issues of Scholastic's "Let's Find Out" magazine to each of our students. Each magazine contains nonfiction text appropriate for young children. Children will learn about a variety of nonfiction topics such as: School Rules, Fire Safety, Martin Luther King Jr., Animals, Dental Health, Earth Day, and Summer Safety. The subscription also includes parent and student online access, with resources for extending the learning into the home.

These magazines are very interactive for our prekindergarten students.

Each issue contains a large "big book style" teacher version to read along with the students. The children learn new vocabulary, math concepts, rhymes, finger plays and actions, and science concepts.

We have been ordering these magazines, every year, for the past few years, for our students, and find them a valuable part of our learning experiences. Thank you for considering a donation toward this project.
