Help me give my students authentic reading materials from Scholastic so they can learn about the world around them. Students will be able to take their own magazines home every week to share with their family!
My Kindergarteners are filled with so much potential! Each day they walk through our doors ready and eager to learn about the world around them. They come from a wide range of places with different backgrounds, living situations, and varying levels of English Language proficiency. Most of our students are economically disadvantaged with very limited (or no) access to reading materials outside of the classroom.
There is nothing more heart-breaking as a teacher, than to have a class full of eager learners and a lack of meaningful materials for them to learn from.
As a teacher I want to expose my students to the world around them in the best, most authentic ways possible. Unfortunately, these fantastic Scholastic materials that are tailored to Kindergarten students could not be included in the school budget, thus giving our children less materials and resources to learn from.
By funding this project you will be putting a meaningful, real-world text (weekly readers) into the hands of every kindergartener in my school, each week, for THE ENTIRE SCHOOL YEAR! That means that each student will take home 32 readable, shareable pieces of literature that they can keep forever AND share with their family! The visuals and text provided in the Scholastic weekly magazines help our students develop an understanding of things happening in the world around them. Anything from beginning school, changing seasons, holidays and cultures around the world, and much more is covered in the weekly readers. Being able to put the same piece of literature into the hands of each student gives them all the opportunity to explore and be fully engaged in the materials. The Scholastic subscription also includes online resources that my teammates and I can use to expand on, clarify and vary the topics included in the weekly readers. The possibilities for learning with these materials are endless and invaluable for our children.
