Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach fourth grade at Graham Elementary. We are a Title 1 School, and most of our students are Hispanic - a large number of them are ESL students. (English as a Second Language) Many of my 31 students never venture out of their own neighborhoods, and are not even aware of the fact that San Francisco is a mere 45 minutes away! Of course, our social studies curriculum, which focuses on California History, will provide the lessons necessary to help them understand this state - but what about learning about the world around them, and the events that will (if not already) one day affect their lives?
I was introduced to the Weekly Reader series by a co-teacher, and fell in love with it immediately. Because these magazines are written in an easy-to-read format, even students who struggle with reading will get a chance to learn about the on-goings of their world community! Colorful photos and captions also capture student interest, and won't intimidate them like newspapers do. The BEST part, however, is that each issue comes with an assessment page that incorporates the educational standards from more than one subject area! I also love the fact that they come in every week (hence their name), which would definitely peak student interest and motivation to read.
