Magazines Help Us to Understand Our Reading Skills

My students need magazines in order to be exposed to informational text and learn how to apply the 5th grade reading skills to what they read.

My Students

I work in a Title One school, in which one hundred percent of the students receive free or reduced price lunch. Despite the students' home challenges, my students come to school each and everyday eager to learn and they aspire to do great things when they become adults. My students don't look or act like their circumstances.

For most of my students, school is the place in which they learn most of their academic and life skills.

I want to provide the necessary resources that can help encourage them and let them dream about doing innovative things. I want my students to believe that they can be anything that they want to be despite their current situations. I hope that with Donors Choose, the necessary resources can be provided to help with our goals.

My Project

The students in my class will be utilizing the Time For Kids in order to apply their reading skills with informational text. Using Time for Kids will allow the students to see how their reading skills can apply to everyday life. The students will close read, write about reading, and discuss the information acquired from the articles.

Time for Kids magazines students allows my students to stay engaged in their reading and to learn facts about things that are happening in the world.

As a teacher I want to provide high-interest text and Time for Kids does just that. I want my students to love reading.
