My students need paper, crayons, and markers to help inspire their work in our writing center!
My classroom is located in Colorado, in a loving but high-needs neighborhood where many families are struggling to learn English as a second language. My students LOVE coming to school and I want to make sure that they have the best materials to help them reach their learning goals.
My first grade students are starting the school year as very hesitant young writers.
Many of them enjoy our daily writing lessons, but feel a lot of stress to spell words correctly, stay on topic, and add enough sentences. To help students feel more comfortable with writing, and to help them develop their skills in a more fun and natural way, I created a writing center that students visit daily. The writing center is a place where kids can free write on white boards and on paper about anything they want. After only a few weeks of this kind of writing freedom, I am already seeing students more excited and confident about their skills!
Our writing center challenge is that we do not have interesting things for the students to write with- only the crayons and pencils that the students brought with them on the first day of school. My class has expressed that they would be even more excited about writing letters, stories, and books if they had colorful markers and other fun writing tools to make the process and our center feel more creative and special. This grant is for high quality crayons, colored pencils, and markers that my students can use to create their wonderful works of writing art!
Please consider donating to this simple, but meaningful project.
Empowering students to create beautiful pieces of writing that they can be proud of will instill a sense of pride that will do wonders to help students continue to grow their skills and their creativity.
