My students need more guided reading materials and Weekly Reader is a great resource for guided reading.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Giving up on learning to read is like giving up on life! My low readers are reaching the point where they are ready to give up and "accept" that they can not read. As their teacher however, I can not let that happen, but I lack the resources to meet the students on their instructional level!
My students are amazing children who face incredible challenges both in and out of the classroom.
They come from low socioeconomic neighborhoods and many are well below grade level. They are reaching the point, as fourth graders, where they are realizing they are below grade level and many out of frustration are becoming are beginning to give up! They have the ability to learn, but we do not have the resources to meet their needs appropriately!
Weekly Reader is a weekly resource that contains excellent non fiction reading. The Weekly Readers are engaging and written on a level my students can read and comprehend. Through this resource, I can conduct guided reading groups and help students apply reading strategies they will need throughout their entire lives! This resource can help to change their views on reading and their opinions of themselves as readers!
Literacy is power!
By giving students the Weekly Reader, which is engaging and they can read it, it gives them power. When they feel empowered, they will never give up! When they do not give up, they can achieve anything! Weekly Reader is one resource that can help empower my students as readers!
