Ms. Gasperson from Hanahan SC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Storyworks Jr. for Success!

My students need a class set of Storyworks Jr. Magazines. The articles are engaging and the kids go crazy for them!

My Students

My students are eager to learn and enjoy the amazing articles that StoryWorks Jr. has to offer. Our school is 63% poverty and we do not currently receive any Title I funding.

StoryWorks Jr helps my students with fluency and comprehension while keeping them completely engaged through interesting articles.

I want to be able to give my students the materials they need to be successful in and out of the classroom. If this project is fully funded, my students will once again be able to enjoy this wonderful classroom magazine for another school year.

My Project

How do you keep a classroom of nine year-olds interested in reading? By giving them a magazine filled with gross animals, stories about Alcatraz, and other wild and crazy texts! In short, give them Storyworks!

StoryWorks Jr Magazine offers a variety of text, builds background knowledge, and encourages the students to learn more.

The articles are rigorous and are offered on three different levels to meet the needs of all students.

Each student will have their own copy of the magazine, as well as access to the online resources. Each magazine includes fiction and nonfiction articles, plays, grammar help, poems, and even debates. StoryWorks Jr. enhances our literacy program by providing the students with a variety of high interest, engaging, and differentiated text.
