Time for Kids for All Kids!

My students need 115 subscriptions for TIME for Kids to expand their knowledge of current events.

My Students

My students YEARN to LEARN! My 10 year old students are so full of curiosity and zest. They would love to learn about other students around the world. Time for Kids can provide that insight on the "outside world" that my students are so curious about.

Most of my students are from low-income homes.

Their families are broken, and for many of my students, school is their safe place. My 5th grade students this year have such a passion for learning. They work so hard and deserve more than I can provide for them. Their thirst for knowledge is inspiring. They spend 10 hours a day at school, and the days can be long. Although many of their home lives are not stable, they put on a brave face at school. My students are full of energy and questions that I cannot always answer. My students have big dreams and set high goals. Many of them talk of going to colleges like LSU, Baylor, UT, and Texas A&M. I truly hope they all achieve their dreams.

My Project

Last year, Chevron generously donated a year subscription of Time for Kids for all of my students. This had a huge impact on my student achievement. The magazines inspired my students to do more. One of the magazines had an article about school lunches, which inspired my students to write letters to our school leader about their school lunches. My school leader decided to sit down and have a discussion with them about their school lunch. Although their lunches didn't change, these students felt a sense of pride that the school leader took time out of his day to sit down with them and talk to them like adults. One project they worked on last year was creating their own Time For Kids magazine. They were so creative and came up with some great articles and ideas about their own lives. Time for Kids is such a great resource, because my students live in a community with very little diversity. They do not know much outside of it, and TFK exposes them to other cultures of the world.

Last year, we did TFK Fridays, and most students will probably say it was one of the classes they looked forward to the most.

My students are so curious and have such a zest for life, and Time for Kids broadens their knowledge and increases their curiosity. These magazines are a great way to build the non-fiction skills I use in my social studies classroom, while increasing their knowledge of current events. Reading TFK will help my students understand the world they live in!
