We are a Title I school and serve a high needs population, facing many daily challenges. Many of our students don't have age appropriate books or any other kind of reading materials available to them in their own homes.
My 4th grade students are active learners and enjoy sharing what they know with one another.
We have several different languages spoken in our classroom and in the homes of the students. My students especially enjoy the opportunity to take their learning home and being able to teach and discuss with family what they are learning.
My goal is to provide opportunities for every student in my class to take home new, current, knowledge about what's happening in the world around them. I want them to be exposed to and become comfortable with approaching different types of literary text so they can become the knowledge bearers.
These magazines would greatly increase access to informational materials as well as a multitude of different story genres for the inquisitive minds of my 4th graders. Not only will the magazines put new, current, high interest materials in front of my students weekly and give them all kinds of choices for reading, writing, and exploration, it will also give them free online access to these magazines and learning tools to use with them. Because each of these magazines contain several high interest articles or stories with information about worldly current events and news in grade level content, combined in one place, so more reading and learning is accomplished. Students won’t need to have a specific idea for what to read about or search different information sites, because they will have a variety of choices to read about delivered right to their hands.
