Hooray! This project is fully funded

In my sixth grade classroom, I focus on teaching reading strategies to help my 80 students tackle challenging texts; now, we just need interesting things to read! Living in an underprivileged neighborhood of New York City, my students do not always have access to varied reading materials, and some do not know yet that reading can be fun. We have a classroom library stocked with mainly fiction titles, but books are not the only type of text I hope for them to explore. Magazines present an engaging medium due to their shorter length, glossy photos, and accessible layout. In addition to including material on current events, history, nature, and literature, some of these magazines actually publish writing by middle-schoolers. What better way is there to inspire my students to write than to show them published work by their peers! I would like to request two year-long subscriptions to the following magazines: Scholastic News, Stone Soup, SuperScience, and Storyworks. Please help foster my students' love for reading and writing! They are trying so hard, but without the right supplies, I fear they may leave the 6th grade without ever feeling the indescribable joy of really connecting to a text and without motivation to express the ideas in their heads.
