Ms. Morgan from Compton CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Our Science Books Died!

My students need engaging nonfiction text, to help improve their fluency and science comprehension. My school district's science textbook is obsolete, and we need reading materials that meet the Next Generation Science Standards.

My Students

My third graders attend a public school in Compton, California. We are a Title I school, with most students qualifying for free or reduced lunch. Crime, gangs, and poverty surround our campus. Inside the classroom, they feel safe and are eager to learn.

Please help fund my project so my students continue to read current science text, and meet the national science standards.

They love to read about real-life phenomena. This engaging text will help improve their literacy skills, and help them understand the world in which they live.

My Project

I will use Super Science Magazine in small and whole group instruction. My students and I will read the articles together, and discuss the science concepts. This magazine will also help my students learn about nonfiction text features. This knowledge will help them comprehend other texts that they read at school and at home.

I will pair it with science demonstrations and experiments, helping students comprehend the text with hands-on activities.

After the lessons are complete, the children will be able to take the magazines home. They can share them with their parents and siblings, teaching others about the exciting science topics they learned about in the classroom.
