Mrs. Sims from Norfolk VA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Scholastic News and File Folder Games

My students need current events materials to enhance vocabulary, encourage independent reading and improve literacy skills. The current events materials as well as the file folder games will assist with making connections with real world activities.

My Students

Our school is a Title I school that offers free/reduced breakfast and lunch to 100% of our students. A free hot dinner is also available to every person in the community age eighteen and under.

Some of our students have extenuating circumstances, like homelessness, that could hinder learning, yet they still manage to come to school anxious to learn with smiles on their faces.

I want give my students every opportunity to grow and flourish. They should know that they can be whatever they want to aspire to with persistence and determination.

Some are without books, magazines, and other reading materials at home. My students enjoy reading e-books and reading about real world events. Our school does not have the funds to provide additional materials that are vital for increased learning in the area of Literacy. I would love to provide my students with materials with fiction and nonfiction stories that they will enjoy.

My Project

My students will use the Scholastic News magazines to build nonfiction-reading skills and increase content area knowledge. Skill sheets, poster/videos, and the written print are all age appropriate with multiple reading levels available on line for differentiation.

Having these file folder games and magazines will enhance the learning process and introduce students to news that may not be available otherwise.

The File folder games will help make connections to real life experiences as well as current events.

Students who read these magazines find reading fun and begin to read more for enjoyment! Helping students begin to learn that reading is fun is perfect way to build better readers.
