Ms. Estrada from Dallas TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

First Grade Writings

My students need inspiration in writing. With these writing sequence pictures cards, and writing and reading centers, phonics puzzles, they can gain the confidence to become authors and illustrators leading to their own published piece.

My Students

Each day my students and I are continuously growing.

We begin the year as friends and become a classroom family.

We learn and crave the exposure to new things from the world around us. My class is comprised of lively and enthusiastic first graders who adore learning. They are always prepared for a challenge and come to school ready to learn. Our Title One school is made up of a large percentage of families of low, socio-economic status. This makes fundraising and receiving donations sometimes difficult, especially for higher priced items. I have an incredible group of parents and families who do all they can to support our learning. Just the time they spend volunteering at school demonstrates the amount of dedication they have toward their childs future.

My Project

As a school wide initiative to focus on the importance of writing across content areas, our first grade class is lacking resources to teach the fundamentals of writing and the writing process. With these learning centers that focus on grammar, story telling, sequence, and the overall writing process we will be ready to produce our first drafts, and work to publish. We can use these materials to take writing step by step and truly understand how to compose an original written piece. With out sight word practice cards and phonics puzzles we cannot recognize words in print to add to our writings.
