I am a third grade teacher in an incredibly diverse and amazing Chicago Public School. My students continue to surprise me on a daily basis with what they are able to understand and discuss. Current events have always lent themselves to easy discussion and connections for the students. I first encountered Time for Kids Magazine as a student teacher (7 years ago) in a college town. The students always eagerly awaited the weekly magazine and LOVED reading and discussing the articles. However, when I dedicated myself to working in urban schools, I quickly realized that the resources weren't always available to provide my students with the most authentic and meaningful learning experiences. It is difficult to ask for $5 per child for a weekly magazine when many of those parents are struggling to support their families. I would like to be able to give my classroom and my students a weekly injection of new events to talk about and current reading materials. A class subscription to Time for Kids would greatly help foster a love for reading, as well as a love for talking about what we are reading. Thank you!
