Hooray! This project is fully funded
The boys and girls in my 2nd grade class are so inquisitive and eager to learn! They come into class each morning with smiles on their faces, excited to find out what the day will bring! Many of my students come from homes where experiences and opportunities are limited, so they thrive on the discoveries they make in class, whether it is through hands-on science activities, books, structured free play, or trying new foods that they've read about in a story. I teach with the belief that all my students are capable and can grow to be successful, despite the disadvantages they may face. I love the fact they are like little sponges, soaking up everything in the classroom around them, from the praying mantis who visited our window one sunny morning, to the patterns the floor tiles make!
The project, that I would like help with, will provide my students with real world examples and current event articles in magazine format. My students are so inquisitive about the world around them, and are always asking questions about current topics, such as natural disasters like the recent hurricane to sporting events. They are never able to find this information in library books and are always reading about things from "long ago", in their minds! However this Scholastic News subscription will give them the opportunity to do so, as it provides them with up to date topics. The magazines will be utilized during small group reading instruction and then be sent home so students can share their learnings with family members!
