My Students

I teach a combo class of 4th and 5th graders (16, 4th and 8, 5th) at an awesome school in the eastern Coachella Valley!

My school is surrounded by farm fields and all of my students are English Language Learners.

I would like to use the Scholastic News Weekly Reader to help my students explore the world and dig deeper into some of the topics/subjects addressed in the Scholastic News issues.

Your donation is going to a school and classroom that would appreciate it. I teach in a low income area, all of the students in our school receive free and reduced meals at school.

My Project

My students need access to these educational magazines to broaden their reading horizons. Scholastic News provides exciting weekly/monthly topics that are fun and engaging. Fourth and fifth grade is a huge year where students learn about Government and California History and start to ask questions about the world around them.

Many of my students don't have access to internet at home so instead they spend their time reading.

I have a strong classroom library but I am lacking magazines. Scholastic News would be a good addition to the reading materials that my students have at their disposal.

My students will know more about the world through the means of an engaging magazine. I would like these magazine for the 2018-2019 school year.
