Help me give my students some current magazines to extend their love of reading. Currently, we do not receive any magazine subscriptions and do not have the money in the district budget to do so at this time.
For the 2019-2020 school year my colleague and I teach a group of 27 5th graders, varying in age from 10 to 12, with 3 students who are not native English speakers, readers, or writers. Although they come from varied countries and backgrounds we have created one large 5th grade family this year.
The students in the 5th class this year are extremely inquisitive and just really have a love of learning and reading.
They read daily in school, and at home every night, even on weekends and holidays! The students enjoy helping each other with reading, and they love hanging out in the library areas of our classroom to enjoy reading.
While our 5th grade students love to read, we currently do not have any magazines, current or old, in our classroom collections of reading material. These are desperately needed!
In the days of looking up everything online, the reading of a good magazine is becoming a lost art.
Magazines are an essential part of any classroom. They are an extension of the books we already have, but add a current events twist with a variety of genres and article lengths, not to mention the incredible text features and colorful imagery that manages to often grab and hold a student's attention and interest more easily than a lengthy book. Please help our students to continue with their love of reading by adding these valuable resources to our classrooms.
