I teach 21 3rd graders at Sawmills Elementary School. Forty percent of my third graders are considered at-risk students in reading/writing. I am currently attending ASU to earn a Master's Degree in Reading Education. I would like to make writing more enjoyable for my students as well as myself! In my graduate classes, I am learning new and exciting ways to integrate writing into all areas of the curriculum. At this time, I need a few materials to get underway. First, I would like to have an easel to use to model the writing process with my students. It is important, especially for struggling writers, to have model when writing. I always model the writing process on the board, however, I usually erase our class stories daily after writing time is over. I would like to have these stories on display for several days in our group time area. I am also interested in creating a writing station in our classroom which will hopefully "invite my students to write." I would like for the students to be able to write letters, compose poems, or go to the station to write freely in their journals. In the writing station, the students would have access to construction paper, envelopes, stationary, colored pencils, pens, pencils, erasers, etc. In the fourth grade, the students are required to pass a state writing test. I want to expose my students to as much writing as possible in 3rd grade to prepare them for this test. More importantly, it is my goal to help my students become better writers, and to instill a love for writing.
