My Students

Our school is a Title I school, which means the majority of our students come from low-income/high-poverty backgrounds. Our school is located in a small, rural town and is surrounded by a close-knitcommunity.

Our 4th graders have developed reading skills and want to use them for real, authentic reading from a variety of texts.

They love to talk and work with their friends, but do not always love to read. I am looking for ways to help them develop and use good social skills, while reading texts that will be meaningful to them. They need opportunities to read and discuss a variety of texts, not only to build their interest in reading, but to learn how to comprehend different genres of texts.

My Project

My 4th grade students need opportunities to read real & meaningful texts. Part of “real-life” reading is learning how to read magazine/news articles, stories, and poetry. Each Storyworks magazine provides students with numerous articles and a wide variety of genres of texts. The articles and stories are written in a kid-friendly format, and are on current topics that 4th graders would be interested in. This magazine also exposes students to new vocabulary and provides opportunities to integrate writing, speaking, and listening with reading. I will use Storyworks with all of my students in both whole group and small group lessons. Students will read both independently and with partners. Students will learn to discuss articles citing evidence from the text. I think students will develop reading skills as well as an interest in reading through these classroom magazines and the digital resources that come with this subscription.
