My students need Weekly Readers and TIME For Kids text to catapult them into a literate rich environment.
Everyone has a morning routine. Usually we turn on the coffee maker and head for the front page of the newspaper. Imagine first graders running to read nonfiction text. We all know the struggles that face our rising generations and we know how engaging reading can be when it's personal and real.
Well, there are 25 ambitious scholars who are dedicated and determined to read.
They watch the news but that's not enough and we don't think we should have to settle. I teach a first grade class in a high poverty public school. We do not have a high percentage of parent involvement and since most of them are from low income households, they are not able to provide financial support. We sometimes lack many resources that help to make a classroom interactive and high energy. My school is a focus school, which means that over 75% of our students are on free or reduced lunch. Many of my students come to school without pencils, paper and/or clean clothes. They lack updated resources that fit their learning needs and learning styles; THEY NEED YOUR HELP!
They need you to help them make resources, REAL resources accessible each day. We don't have the money to travel, take trips and explore places and ideas that are needed to become leaders of the 21st century. We can take those trips and explore those ideas through subscriptions to Weekly Reader, Weekly Reader Science and TIME For Kids. Just Imagine "First grade scholars who are up to date on the current events, science research and the conversations that are created from the experiences that these readers will bring." We can't wait?
So will you wait?
Will you wait until someone figures out our "budget" so that we can explore different places and current events of our nation. Will you wait until we're in second grade or high school graduates? We hope not, because we know if this norm of nonfiction text is instilled in first grade it will never go away. If you help to make these resources accessible to our class we are bound to become the leaders we know we can be. Will you help us? Are you "READ"y, because we sure are.
