Reading for Information

My students need 25 copies each of 2 magazines that support new standards in non-fiction text.

My Students

Do you remember the excitement you felt when you took home your Weekly magazine reader? My students need the same resources to experience the joy of reading at home.

My students are the craziest, most interesting, exciting people!

Many of them come from homes where they do not have access to reading materials. Our school is a Title One school. Most of our students receive free and reduced lunch and other resources from community agencies. These kids are triumphing despite not always living in the most stable home situations.

My Project

These weekly magazines will provide opportunities for these students to read, not only in the classroom but at home. Many of my students do not have access to reading materials at home. Through these resources my students will be able to not only increase their reading skills, they will also be able to experience non-fiction text that is First Grade-friendly and inspires them to explore their world. In addition, the readers allow parents to take an active role in discussing the same information covered in class. I am excited to think about the possibilities this will create because school instruction will be reinforced during home reading.

First grade is the foundation of reading for my students.

I want them to be excited about reading and science so that by the time they get into older grades they have positive experiences in both subjects. I know that supporting this project will help my students understand that they are important and that other people recognize that they are intelligent and creative members of society, even though they are young.
