My Students

My students are amazingly thoughtful learners. They come to school each day eager to learn and full of great questions! I love to hear them explain their thinking and share their knowledge with each other.

In this beautifully diverse classroom, students work together, learn together, and grow together.

Out of the 68 third-graders in my school, more than half are English Learners. In my classroom alone, there are 9 different primary languages. As students work on their reading in the classroom, it would be incredibly beneficial to have them read a text that is up-to-date, at their level, and filled with interesting articles!

My Project

I would like to provide my students with an exciting and authentic reading experience, focusing on current events. With this subscription to Scholastic Magazine, I can give my students the practice they need reading nonfiction texts. What a treat for students to receive their magazine when it arrives! I can see their excitement already.

Their understanding of the text will lead to great classroom discussions and I can't wait to hear their thoughts, comments, and questions about what is happening in the world.

A subscription to Scholastic Magazine would make a positive impact on my students' reading lives and how they view reading nonfiction. It would keep their curious questions coming!
