Reading for Excitement!

My students need 32 subscriptions to Scholastic Magazine in order to have weekly reading in science and social studies.

My Students

Our class needs more exposure to science and social studies at their level of understanding and Scholastic Magazines have great articles and colorful pictures for our EL learners.

My classroom is an "alternative class".

Which means that we begin our school year with the core subjects taught in Spanish and make a transition to all English by mid year. A group like this is very unique. They are excited about learning English and jump at every opportunity to learn the language. We are a Title 1 school with a high poverty level. Many of my students shy away when reading English because they are intimidated by the length of the text. When they see shorter paragraphs they all seem to want to read.

My Project

I personally chose Scholastic Magazines for my class because as an English Learner myself I recall how intimidating long text in History and Science books could be. Through a weekly subscription of Scholastic Magazines my students will not only jump at the chance at reading but will also be immersed in other subjects such as science and history. The text on the magazines is very kid friendly and the colorful pictures keep the children asking questions and wanting more of these magazines.

With our state focusing so much on Language Arts and Math we have very little time to teach a complete and impacting lesson in Science or Social Studies.

With these magazines students will be learning something new every week and the best part is that they will be excited to take them home and share with their families.
