My students are some of the most respectful, compassionate, and diligent young people that I have ever met. They devote their time and energy to making other people happy and to making our school a better community.
Many of my 5th graders have big dreams despite coming from low-income families, having special needs, or learning English as a second language.
They persevere through so many challenges and still remain kind and hard-working individuals. They deserve every opportunity that students from higher income districts are given.
These Scholastic Magazines will make a difference in my students' learning by giving them reading material that they can read at home. Many of my students do not have age-appropriate reading materials available to them outside of school. Therefore, they cannot read the recommended 20 minutes per night which helps them become stronger readers. The magazines will expose them to different genres and types of texts that are engaging and relevant. The magazines also have comprehension questions and activities to supplement their reading which will provide students the opportunity to develop deeper understandings of the texts. These magazines will be perfect for my students!
