My Students

Students are curious about the real world, and I challenge them every day to reach out to what is happening in the world today.

I have twenty-two fifth graders who live in rural Florida.

They are bright, energetic and inquisitive learners. They enjoy reading and discussing real world topics with each other. They are constantly looking for age appropriate current events. They have been asking for magazines, and they have persuaded me to request TIME for Kids subscriptions for them.

My Project

My students need 24 subscriptions to TIME for Kids to connect to the real world issues that are happening. Students will be reading complex, age-appropriate text and practicing their 21st literacy skills. The color issues are high interest, and they reflect what is happening in their world in an age-appropriate manner. Students will be able to use their close reading and analytical writing skills weekly in the classroom and at home.

Donations to this project will provide students with age-appropriate text about current events to discuss and analyze.

They will be utilizing their writing, reading and speaking skills to discuss the issues, news and their opinions in a safe learning environment.
