My Students

My third grade class of 20 students who come from a small, rural town in West Virginia. We are a large elementary school of around 700 students. Most of the students in our school come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. All of the students at our school receive free lunch and breakfast every day. My students' ability levels range from above average to below average, and everything in between.

My students are eager to learn each and every day.

I want to be able to give my students a classroom environment that will enhance their learning and allow them to reach their full potential.

My Project

In 3rd grade, we really try to get students to start reading nonfiction stories. By having Scholastic News magazines in the class, it would help give the students something new, each month, that is nonfiction to read. These news magazines are full of interesting articles and pictures that the students would love!

These magazines would be great for independent reading or small groups.

Scholastic News would improve the students reading skills and get them interested in what is going on in the world around them. My class and I would appreciate your help with getting these magazines in our classroom.
