Colorful Writing

My students need colored pencils to learn about writing.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Learning to write can be a colorful experience if done right. I teach English in a High school special education setting. My students are 10th, 11th, and 12th graders who are in great need of learning how to write.

My students need to learn how to write before they leave high school. Even though they are in high school, it is not to late to teach them the right way to write a paper.

Using colored pencils to write will help my students be able to see what their topic sentence, supporting details, and concluding sentence are. Each one of these important parts of a paragraph will be a different color. My students will also be able to proofread their papers using yet another color pencil.

When you purchase colored pencils for my class, you not only help them learn how to write, you allow them to have fun and make their writing colorful. Thank you for helping my students want to learn to write and making learning exciting!
