Hooray! This project is fully funded
Learning how to not only draw but create and write stories is a huge part of first grade. My students need a writing station that they can go to, to get supplies to create their stories! They also need a meeting place to share these stories with each other!
I teach in a low income elementary school.
My first graders come from very diverse backgrounds and don't always come to school with the tools they need to excel. It's up to me to supply them with these tools, and with your help I can! My first graders love using their imagination and coming up with creative ways to express themselves!
My students love expressing themselves through writing! They love writing about themselves and creating stories about fictional characters. I want to give them a writing station where they can find all the materials they need in order to become successful writers. After writing their stories, my students also need to learn how to share what they've written with each other. A rug is a common meeting place where we can gather and listen to our stories! Sturdy book bins to hold our class library is also important in our room because it shows the students what successful authors can do if they just keep dreaming!
This writing station will help my students become real authors of their own stories!
It will help them build confidence as writers and readers! They will learn how to write their own stories, listen and help others with their stories, and find inspiration for future stories!
