Weekly Readers Not Weakly Readers

My students need Weekly Readers with Science Spin and Character Education picture books.

My Students

Do you remember getting magazines that were "just right"? Do you remember getting mail? I want my eager first graders to have the opportunity to get "just right" mail on a regular basis.

My students are the face of the United States of America.

Some have been born in this country to English speaking parents. Some have been in born in the United States to Spanish or Vietnamese speaking parents. Others have been born in another country and immigrated to the United States. One thing that all of my students have in common is their zest for learning. They are so wonderful in that they don't see the differences between themselves. Mutual acceptance abounds at our school. A large percentage of these wonderful students come to school to learn in English. They then go home to another language. Think about the responsibility of having to work in English on homework and in school, then go home and communicate with parents and grandparents in the family language. Their resiliency astounds me at times.

My Project

Think of the bright eyes of my students as they receive their very own "magazine" to read and then take home to share with their families. Weekly Reader is something I have a fond memory of from my school days. I want to have my students have fond memories of school. Having a tangible magazine to read is becoming rare in our electronic age. Many of my students don't have magazines delivered to their houses. Once we have read each issue in class, the students can then take them home and share them with their families. This will strengthen reading skills. Many of these magazines have captions with the pictures and students will be learning another important skill with ease. The requested character education books are important for character development. Sadly, we are getting students in school who have not learned many of these essential skills at home. Attending school and reading aloud are great supplements to helping students become great citizens of our school, city, state, and country.

Your impact will definitely brighten the eyes of my incoming first graders.

They love getting something that becomes their own as the Weekly Readers will. Imagine the empowerment you will be providing by helping students learn more about the world around them in an informal and educational format.
