Reading is very important in my classroom. In my third grade classroom 2/3rds of the school day is devoted to reading instruction and development. In many studies that have been done on reading, statistics show that if a student does not have the basic reading skills by third grade, they will not be successful in the future. In my classroom we read many different types of material. One thing we use on a weekly basis is the Weekly Reader magazine and Scholastic News. These short paper booklets build reading comprehension, information on current events, and can easily be integrated into the science and social studies curriculum. I would like to request a one-year subscription for the Weekly Reader and Scholastic News. These subscription will be used for the next school year (2006/2007). I am asking for this donation now, so that I can have the first magazine here ready to use when school begins. It is very important for these items to arrive on time for my next group of amazing students. If you are willing to help my classroom develop their reading skills using relevant, current material that is based on current events, please fund this student project. With this year as an indication, my future students will truly benefit from this donation.
