Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach fourth Grade in St. Paul, Minnesota. Many of the students qualify for free and reduced lunch Our classrooms very diverse. Many students come to us straight from other countries, with no english skills. They are socially, academically and emotionally unique students.
Living in the inner city most of them do not have the resources to learn at home.
Many do not own a computer or have access to the internet. If they own a television, they don't have access to cable.
The school I work at does not have the money to give to teachers to buy some of the necessary items needed in the classroom. I find myself spending money on pencils, glue, paper, notebooks and even children's books for reading.
In the past the fourth grade has used the Time for Kids Magazine to expose our students to current events. The magazine also contains graphs, essays, and interesting informational text. The magazines are shared with the classrooms and some students even take them home.
We all encourage students' curiosity about the world around them and engage them in current events that are relevant to their lives.
I would like to purchase two classroom subscriptions to TIME For Kids Magazine for the four fourth grade classrooms. This purchase will expand their reading, background knowledge, reading and understanding graphs and enrich classroom discussion.
