Mrs. Linden from Sioux City IA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need 30 Scholastic StoryWorks Magazines and 30 Geography Spin Magazines to help assist them in achieving their goals of reading quality literature of different genres.
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
The work we do in this classroom is building relationships, connecting what we read to today's world, following directions, and accessing general education content in different ways.
We celebrate little wins together each day!
Even with being in a 100% free and reduced lunch school, my students are inquisitive, voracious readers who are craving to discover the newest adventures in many different reading materials. My goal is to keep their reading appetites full for the entire school year!
Each issue of StoryWorks provides poetry, plays, grammar practices, fiction, non-fiction, as well as examples of student written work such as persuasive writing and even book reviews of current literature. Students really need a variety of texts to grow as readers and learners. One area in which it is difficult to find texts for students is written plays, or dramas. According to the American Alliance for Theatre and Education, completing"Drama activities improve reading comprehension, and both verbal and non-verbal communication skills." In each issue of StoryWorks magazine a new play is published. This will greatly assist me in teaching the genre of plays.
Scholastic is a reputable company that is well known in the children's publishing industry.
While our students read tons of Scholastic books, how often do those books contain plays, social studies topics, or poetry? This set of magazines will give my students access to a variety of quality literature. Do you remember getting magazines in your classroom? Do you remember how exciting it was to flip through that new magazine just to see what was featured that month? I want my students to feel that excitement.
