My students need Scholastic News and Science Spin to keep my classroom up to date on real world events while making connections to our reading, math and science standards.
My students are learning to connect real world issues with what we are learning. We are learning to be great thinkers, problem solvers, and readers. Our biggest struggle is making these real world connections with limited resources. "Education is the movement from darkness to light" ~ Allan Bloom.
Our area has suffered from a decline in jobs, resulting in many families having to move from their homes.
It has also resulted in the amount of funds we receive as a school district. My classes are pretty evenly divided as far as boys and girls this year. In total we have 15 students who currently have an IEP and 81% of the first graders receive free or reduced lunches. This is a big achievement gap percentage that I hope we can close with the assistance of this project. My classes love to use new resources and learn about different areas. They are a joy to teach and make my job worth it.
My students can utilize the Scholastic News magazine to make connects to real world events, learn about new places, and reach their learning targets for their reading, mathematics and social studies standards. They can also utilize the Science Spin magazine to make real world connects and to reach their learning targets for mathematics and science. With the science standards in full bloom this year, my students could really benefit from the added resource of the Science Spin magazine in addition to the Scholastic News magazine, which provides some science content as well. These magazines will provide my students the opportunity for partner and group activities that they otherwise would not have access to.
Donations to this project will help improve my students education enormously.
My school district is limited on funds they receive, and our community has suffered from a decline in jobs over the last few years making it harder for families to provide things needed for their children's education. By donating to this project you could be helping to shape and mold a child's mind. The magazines are very educational and full of across the curriculum information. They will be a wonderful added resource.Read More
