Defeat Grammar

My students need 1 highlighter tape center, 1 classroom timer, 30 reusable write and wipe pockets, 30 write and wipe mini dry erase boards, and 1 Language Activities Library CD-ROMs.

My Students

A typical day in my classroom includes students sitting down and listening to the teacher. I want to change this routine! My students need to experience engaging activities and be involve in their own learning.

Can you imagine kids running outside and talking to their friends?

My students have so much energy, but when it comes to classroom work, they look like zombies. I have several students that can't read at grade level, write in complete sentences, or speak English correctly.

My Project

I a requesting 1 highlighter tape center, 1 classroom timer, 30 reusable write and wipe pockets, 30 write and wipe mini dry erase boards, and 1 Language Activities Library CD-ROMs. My students would use all the materials that are donated to improve English grammar and participate in class actives by moving around. We usually run out of time, so having a class timer will help my students keep up with time. Having individual white boards will help me check for understanding when I ask students questions. They will learn how to respond to questions and answer their questions in complete sentences. Having the SmartBoard as one of my centers where students can work on verbs, common misspelled words, adjectives, and other activities without me being there the whole time will help my students practice grammar and improve their writing without even noticing.

Funding this project will improve my classroom in a positive way.

Students will practice grammar, which will help my students communicate with peers, adults, and most of all with themselves. By increasing their level of grammar, students will be able to write amazing essays and stories. Who knows, maybe in the future one of my students will be writing a speech for the president.
