Ms. Vargas from Cudahy CA is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Reading Is The Answer

My students need a Time For Kids magazine subscription.

My Students

I want my students to read as many important themes, current events and nonfiction text as possible.

My students live in a very poor community.

Many do not have appropriate reading material in their homes. 100% of my students qualify and receive free lunch. I don't have enough nonfiction books in our class library for them to enjoy or take home to read.

My Project

Each student will get their own magazine subscription. We will use the magazines to read important articles, compare and contrast different cultures around the world and write expository responses. Once we use the magazines in the classroom, students will be able to continue enjoying them at home.

This project will make a difference in my students' lives because it will expose them to important current events and new vocabulary words.

They will learn about their world through stories, maps, graphs, data and beautiful pictures.
