My Students

This class has taken over my heart! They are overall eager to learn and push themselves harder every day. Their families have all experienced hardships and the students know how to improve their own future by working hard today.

They lead me in their education and show me which paths they need to take.

Their vibrant personalities, creative minds, and perseverance make every day uniquely special. My students especially love reading because it gives them an opportunity to broaden their experiences and learn more about the world. They would become ecstatic if they got the opportunity to have more reading time with these magazines and connect the magazine topics to what they are learning in all subjects.

My Project

My students need more opportunities to learn about current events and to connect their learning from the classroom to the larger outside world. With subscriptions to Scholastic News and Geography Spin, students will be able to learn and make these connections twice every month in whole class or small group settings. We will use these magazines in all subjects to extend our learning. *Although these magazines are meant to be consumable, students will not be writing on them or taking them home. These magazines will be reused for years to come!

These magazines will widen students' understanding and enrich their learning experience.

These students do not have much opportunity to learn about current events at home and we do not have the time to just discuss current events in the classroom to make real world connections. But, with these magazines we WILL have the time to discuss real world topics because the magazines connect to our existing curriculum. These magazine articles will still be relatable to students who use these magazines in future years because many topics in these magazines remain current or relatable.
