Mrs. Keane from Chino Hills CA is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Understanding Our World and Making a Difference

My students need 63 nonfiction reading magazines to help them understand the real world.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

The students I serve are from various ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds, I would like to bridge this gap, and provide to my students facts and understanding about the world in an interesting format.

The students are anxious to learn and amaze me daily with their perseverance.

Many are raised in homes that speak only a foreign language and have no books. They are serious and dedicated in the classroom and spontaneous and fun once they hit the playground!

My Project

Real life magazines such as "Time for Kids" and "Weekly Reader" hit the heart of the curriculum. Students are intrigued when they begin to understand they live in a world that is full of exciting and challenging events that affect their lives. Students will learn factual information and I will guide them to take action regarding the topics that excite them.

It is important that I inspire and support the students while they pursue their passions.

Through these readers the students will be exposed to topics that occur in the world and even in their immediate area. There is a strong connection that is made from the student to the real world through reading non-fiction.
