My Students

It's only the first week of school, and I can already tell it is going to be an amazing school year. My students are the sweetest group I have had in a while. They come into my class with smiles and spontaneous hugs for me. The sense of calm and peace in my room is wonderful. They genuinely like each other and get along beautifully. My students are also very eager to learn. I love looking down into their sweet, expectant faces during our daily read-alouds and watching them soak up the story I am reading, and the knowledge I am imparting.

My strong desire to provide the best learning opportunities for my students is what drives me to post projects on Donor's Choose.

I want to do everything I can to make sure that this amazing class of students gets the very best I have to offer. I have been teaching a long time and I feel the best way to honor my wonderful former students is to give all that I can to this year's class.

My Project

My 5th graders can't get enough practice reading both fiction and non-fiction text. Although they do get access to books at our school library, they would benefit greatly from having access to Scholastic's News and Action magazines. Each day, we have a Balanced Literacy block in which I provide a reading mini-lesson, and then give students independent reading time. I envision using these Scholastic magazines after teaching a mini-lesson on non-fiction text structures. Students would then be given a few questions based on the Scholastic Magazine article of my choice based on non-fiction text structures.

Students will be able to keep up with current events and gain extra practice on their reading skills using Scholastic News and Action magazines.

I remember using Scholastic Scope magazine in my classroom in the early 2000s, and my middle school students enjoyed them immensely! The magazines would definitely help students become more engaged in reading and target the informational reading common core standards.
