Will You Help Fill Our Book Bins?
My students need materials to read that will open their eyes to what is happening ouside of their neighborhoods. These magazines will help them learn about the news of the world while gaining skills in reading.
First Grade is off to a great start for our enthusiastic students! We are working diligently to remember all that was learned in Kindergarten and build upon those skills. We practice daily our reading, writing and math and are already progressing.
Our students come from low income families in one of the highest crime areas of our city, yet they arrive to school each day with smiling faces and an excitement for learning.
Our school is a haven for them; a constant that they rely upon for security and sustenance. The majority of students receive free breakfast and lunch.
Unlike students in other schools, students from this urban setting may not be exposed to the events and news of the world. The may only be aware of what happens locally. Reading news magazines together and discussing the information from each issue will help with their comprehension and awareness of the world around them. Having access to the magazines in their reading bins will allow them to read each issue multiple times to build their skills.
If they are to become global learners they need a window to what is outside of their immediate community.
The information in the news magazines will help them learn of world events. They are so eager to learn and reading is our top priority this year. We are lacking in materials for the students to practice their reading skills. Our book bins are bare!
