I teach 4th grade Reading, Spelling, Social Studies, and Science in a small school in MS that was affected by Kurrican Katrina. Most 4th graders can read words , but are learning to put meaning to the text. A classroom set of dictionaries and a set of encyclopedias will fill their wondering minds with a lot of knowledge and research skills. A classroom set of chapter books will allow them to build comprehension using reading strategies. The video recorder will allow the students to video themselves and prepare PowerPoint presentations to share with other students, parents, and others. At present, I teach 51 students who will benefit greatly from receiving Weekly Readers, but the present and future students will benefit from all the other resources.
