My students need 30 year long subscriptions of Scholastic Weekly Readers to read at school and at home.
When you were little, would you watch adults reading their grown up magazines and wish you had your own grown up magazine? I know I did! With a year long subscription of Scholastic Weekly Readers, my students can each have the their very own little grown up magazines!
I teach a brilliant, buoyant bunch of four and five year olds in an urban Kindergarten at a public school.
Our school is community centered and filled with wonderful children and educators but funding has been continually cut and I am unable to provide the students with all the resources I would like. The parents at my school are also amazing. They are helpful, and want the best for their children but many families struggle to make ends meet at our school and many families can only afford the most basic school supplies. I want my students to have the same opportunities and resources available to them that wealthier families provide. That is why this grant is requesting reading materials, the Weekly Readers, for Kindergarten aged students.
These Weekly Readers will come to my classroom every week all school year long. The magazines are filled with glossy pictures that will keep the children motivated to look at the pictures and begin to read the words. They will love bringing home their new "magazine" each week to share with their parents. Parents love the Weekly Readers too! In the past, I have had parents tell me that they keep every single issue and reread them with their child. The readers are especially useful because they are non-fiction and expose the students to a variety of real subjects based on themes such as ocean life, seasons, friendship. All of the themes are aligned with units I teach in Kindergarten so the readers not only motivate the children to learn to read but they support classroom learning as well. As an added bonus, the last page of each reader is an activity page that assesses what children learned through a fun activity such as a word scramble, matching game, or maze.
This project is important because the Weekly Readers are an incredible incentive to read.
My students are much more motivated to read something they know they can then take home, share with their parents, and keep forever! Please consider helping my students on their journey toward a literary life filled with a love for reading. It's amazing how far students can progress in reading at a young age when they have great resources and the support of people like YOU! Thank you in advance!Read More
