Ms. Rowe from Bell CA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creating Crafty Writers

My students need access to well-known author's literature, such as Henkes, Rylant, and Woodson, to develop their own writing style. Some of the titles I am requesting are Daisy Comes Homes, Moving Day, Missing May, and Jessica.

My Students

Do you remember all the RED marks your teacher tread upon your wonderful stories in school. Well, no longer with Writer's Workshop! However, teachers need mentor text to model and inspire students' writing. I have requested 23 highly recommended literature books.

Students at our school are living in tough times, as most of us all.

However, school should remain a place to grow, prosper, and give hope for the future. Our kids need role models. Our kids need to feel they have a place in the world now and in the future.

My Project

Writing is a way to reflect, hope, dream, express, and . . . grow. Let's inspire through writer's that have accomplished such expression. Let's help kids share their ideas, emotions, and life experiences through writing with writer's as their inspiration. My students need access to well-known author's literature, such as Henkes, Rylant, and Woodson, to develop their own writing style. Some of the titles I am requesting are Daisy Comes Homes, Moving Day, Missing May, and Jessica.

Writer's Workshop is a wonderful curriculum!

But it can only be effective with the tools to run it. BOOKS . . . our school, city, and teacher's hometown library can not fulfill this need. Books are checked out, lost, or not even available. We need accessible mentor text to model good writing!
