So many children take great care with their work. There is a genuine interest in wanting to do their best.
I often see kids working together looking back over their work with one another discussing strategy, asking each other questions, helping to edit and revise work. There is a determination to help each other, not just to get the right answers, but to understand and express to others "why" those answers are right.

We've all experienced it, the teacher says take out a piece of paper and you realize.... you do not have any paper.
Now imagine what it feels like to be the teacher and not have any paper to give to students?
It's not a great feeling which is why we need your help!
We need paper to copy quality pieces of literature and news articles so that each student can have their own copy. We need paper so that we can give students copies of work to enhance their skills in ELA such as parts of speech. It's difficult when you cannot write on the actual paper sometimes.
Most of all we need paper so that we can print out the amazing work our students create when they are writing narratives, informational, and persuasive pieces of writing to share with others.
My students love it when they can see their work printed out and hung on the wall or better yet given an extra copy so that they can bring it home and share with their families.
Budgets are tight, we all know that and we all do the best we can! We absolutely live in a world of technology where much of what we do is online. However, there is something to be said for the fact that a piece of paper can represent what makes us most proud.
