I am a third year teacher in first grade. I currently have 21 students in my class. The majority of my class are minority students living in low income areas. I am looking for ways for my students to be able to gain knowledge through resources available outside the classroom. Last year I received a sample set of Scholastic News articles. My students loved them. This year I have only one article from the sample set from February. My students this year are very interested in them, however I have to copy these from my master copy. My master copy has vibrant colors which my students always ask why their books are not in color. I am certain that having these articles in color would help to benefit their reading interest as well as my copy number. I teach at a school where we are only permitted 10,000 copies a semester. That sounds like a lot, but we are also lacking reading workbooks, math workbooks, and other workbooks in the classrooms. Therefore, all the pages that we would like for our students to use we must copy. I sincerely believe getting these magazines will help to increase the enthusiam for reading about topics such as dental health, Valentine's day, Presidents' Day, etc. And those topics are simply for February. If we could get these articles year round my students would be able to take home a newspaper every week with new information about the world around them.
