Mrs. C. from Lumberton NC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Developing Inspiring Writers With Endless Possibilities In Kindergarten

The cost of this proposal is $394.63

  • $482 goal

This project expired on May 25, 2006.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a kindergarten teacher with 25 students in a Title I School. This proposal is to acquire fun writing materials to spark the interest of my aspiring little writers. I desperately need added attractions and activities to develop their writing. Each day, my writing station is never seen as an interesting student choice. The writing center is vital in developing fine motor skills, creating class books, forming letters, writing simple sentences and messages, and making cards. These materials will allow me to meet my student needs ranging from the concrete to the abstract. What goals could be met effectively through this proposal? It will assist my children in developing a greater independence in writing, gain control of penmanship and beginning strokes, use phonological knowledge to map sounds to letters to write messages and ultimately self expression. With your contribution, you can make this possible. Thanks in Advance.
