Mrs. Alihodzic from Hartford CT is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Time For Kids Project

Help me give my students opportunity to increase their reading abilities. Including these magazines in my literacy instruction will provide opportunities for students to learn at their instructional level and enable me to differentiate lessons.

My Students

I teach an amazing group of diverse inner city 5th grade students! My classroom is part of a fully inclusive K-5 Elementary School with a distribution of Special Education students, English Language Learners, and regular education students. Our school’s inclusivity model encourages students to learn acceptance of others, and that each person has unique abilities. My students have mixed interests, abilities, and goals but lack some of the necessary supplies and tool required for full engagement opportunities and academic success.

My Project

This project will increase students' literacy skills and it will help them grow stronger in reading. My students do not have access to a literacy curriculum and this project will help me differentiate lessons to accommodate students' interests and literacy needs. The nonfiction articles are a great resource to utilize to reinforce literacy skills at different levels. The TIME for Kids magazine covers social study and science topics and it will help to reinforce the science standards the students are expected to be proficient with. Also, the most beneficial component of having access to these magazines is to provide my students with opportunities to read, think and talk about current events.
