Help me give my students the opportunity to express themselves through the art of writing - this bundle will address handwriting, grammar, punctuation, and more! I want them to become creative, confident writers.
I am a first-grade teacher at a suburban, Title I school in southeastern Virginia. One hundred percent of the students at my school receive free breakfast and lunch. Many receive food bags to help support their families over the weekend. Of our student population, 80% are considered to be minority and 74% are economically disadvantaged. Some of my students struggle with language. Some of my students struggle with self-control. One thing they don't struggle with is their eagerness to learn!
We are a diverse classroom with many different learning styles & abilities, but one thing is for certain: my first graders are amazing!
Although we use technology in our classroom, we love exploring our world and learning through hands-on experiences. My students love working independently during our reading & math small group blocks. And, we love reading & incorporating our experiences into our writing. We are a busy classroom, but we are busy having fun and learning at the same time!
Writing is an amazing way for students to reflect on the world around them. It is important that they have a chance to reflect about the world around them. By incorporating literature and examples of writing, it is my hope to foster my students' creativity & confidence when it comes to writing.
My goal is to provide my students with a writing curriculum that supports the diversity in my classroom and allows my students to see a reflection of themselves in the lessons.
These writing units & activities will cover language arts, science, and social studies topics throughout the year. The writing activities also align with many of the reading objectives we cover throughout the year. By aligning the writing activities with different stories, my students will gain a respect for what writers do. Hopefully, they will become inspired by the grand diversity of our world! Thank you for your support!
