My Students

My students come from difficult backgrounds. Most struggle with writing or finding ways to express themselves. I truest believe journaling is a strong foundation for writing. It also helps with mental health and stability. I plan journaling throughout the year in both ELA and social studies. This project will help with the supplies that are needed for each student to have the best materials possible to explore their writing skills. Thank you in advance for your help and encouragement.

My Project

My students come from rough backgrounds and need a creative outlet. I want to help them with their writing and give them an outlet for their thoughts. I want To make the experience fun and have them learn to write even when they do not realize it is happening. I have tried this in the past and the students really enjoy the activity. I want to expand the activity and use it for all of my lessons. To do this, I need composition notebooks and pens to expand my writing center and art supplies. Thank you for your help and encouragement.
