Time for Kids Means Time for Learning!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach first grade at a low-income and 98% minority school in NC. Every student in our school receives free or reduced breakfast and lunch. We are experiencing major budget cuts in NC and we do not have money for extras such as magazines. I teach all subjects and team teach Social Studies so I have 2 classes of students every day ready to learn about their world.

Our students need to know that there is a big world out there for them to explore. My students love reading non-fiction and enjoy the copy of "Time for Kids" we have in our library. They are so interested in our new President and the different topics they read about in "Time for Kids". There is only one copy per grade level available to them and some students end up never seeing the copy.

"Time for Kids" is amazing reading material for young children. The magazine exposes children to current events in a way that is age appropriate for first graders to understand and comprehend. The magazine is beautifully illustrated and keeps student's attention. My students have a thirst for knowledge and Time for Kids is the perfect way to expose them (and their parents) to different topics that are timely and will spark their interest in learning more!

I would absolutely love having a subscription to Time for Kids for my students. You will be giving them a gift that will empower their minds to grow and reach further than ever before. Please make this possible for my students.
