Ms. Harrison from Midland TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creative Writing Supplies!

Help me give my students supplies to encourage writing; my students love to sit on the floor around the classroom and use clipboards with bright colored notebook paper when they write!

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They enjoy hands-on, active, and engaging projects that allow them to think outside the box. They come to school each day enthusiastic and excited to try new things!

Each child in my classroom loves learning, although the process and environment in which they learn best can vary drastically.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met! They are truly an amazing group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have students that are excited and ready to learn this year!

My Project

My students prefer to choose quiet spots on the floor around my classroom to write. I have 4 clipboards in my room right now that they love to use. A class set would be wonderful! It still amazes me how colored paper generates enthusiasm to write. One of our favorite parts of writing is publishing our work using markers and construction paper! My students enjoy adding illustrations and art to their compositions. I display my students published work in the hallway or classroom. I have learned that children are more engaged in learning when I incorporate hands on activities. For example, they love to play board games and bingo to study parts of speech or suffixes. They also love making posters on chart paper for my word wall as a review of what we have been learning!

It is the little details that can make writing more engaging and exciting for my students!

Seeing them produce creative pieces and add their personality with art, and watching them have fun while studying nouns and adjectives is truly rewarding. Having access to these materials in my classroom will help encourage my students to love writing.
