Little People Reading BIG News

My students need a classroom subscription to Scholastic News Magazine to stay in touch with current events, and become better at reading informational text.

My Students

As a child, I remember seeing my parents read the newspaper and magazines, and wanting to read them myself! Unfortunately, fourth graders don't understand current events written for adults. My students want to get their hands on informational text that they can understand.

My students are in fourth grade at a Title I school.

90% of our students qualify for free or reduced price lunch. I teach in an ELL classroom, so some of my students are not proficient in English. School is an escape, a safe place, and in our classroom, a family. My class loves to learn, and shows that by giving their all everyday. Please help us achieve greatness and continue on the path to college by donating to this project!

My Project

Each year that fourth graders at our school take the big standardized test, they fall short in one big area â€" they don't know how to read informational text. Informational text is real life text that we as adults read every day, such as recipes, newspapers, or magazines. The students in my class can't afford informational text such as newspapers or magazines, and it often is written at too high of a level for them. I have requested a classroom subscription to Scholastic News Magazine so my students can stay in touch with current events, and become better at reading informational text. By donating to my proposal, each student would receive 24 issues of their very own magazine. Not only would they be getting more knowledgeable about current events, but they would be building the skills they need to pass the standardized test.

If you choose to support my project you will be helping shape 27 individual lives.

They will remember what they read about, and talked about in my class for years to come. They will take their fresh knowledge about the world into each new life experience.
