Help me give my students Scholastic Let's Find Out and Scholastic Spin magazines.
This project is not currently eligible for funding.
Every day, I have the joy of creating memories of success, failure, and perseverance while teaching kindergartners the joys of learning.
My kindergartners want to be the best that they can, yet our state is 51st in school funding.
We are a Title I school, where everyone receives free breakfast and most receive free or reduced-price lunch. Many of my students come from trauma-filled backgrounds, low-income families, and will be the first to go to college. Despite these struggles, my five-year-old scholars are still inquisitive. They are full of questions, from the iconic "Why is the sky blue?" to the question I was asked the other day, "Why do apples come in different colors?" I want my students to further their curiosity by learning how to read, write, do math, and be knowledgeable about the world. Furthermore, I want them to go home and share their learning with their families.
I was fortunate enough to receive Let's Find Out and Science Spin magazines this school year.
I would love to continue the subscriptions for next years' students.
In the first half of this school year, by using these magazines, I have noticed not only are my students exploring thematic topics, but they are also learning to excel at answering questions about text on their own.
The Science Spin magazines supplement are almost-non-existent science curriculum. This years' magazine included a whole issue on nocturnal animals; I have never seen my students so engaged about learning about the natural world, a tenet of the Expeditionary Learning curriculum we use.
