Flourishing Writers Publish

My students need help publishing their writing with pencils and a printer! We love to proudly display our work, but have been unable to since our printer bit the dust.

My Students

I have twenty-four hard working students. Every morning they come to school excited to see their friends and learn new things. The students face poverty, split families, and hunger each day. On top of all of this, they strive to do their best and grow each day in the classroom. School is a place of refuge, and I strive to work together with students to create an environment where the stress and distractions of home fade away.

A pivotal element to my students' success is developing a classroom community of readers, writers, and learners.

As a class, we must come together as a team each day, putting behind us the elements that are out of our control and picking up the day's tasks. We must learn to deal with conflict, emotion, and challenge. Together, we learn from one another and are inspired to never give up!

My Project

My students work each week to progress through the writing process. During this time, they read and comprehend, plan, type, revise/edit, and until recently publish.

Our classroom printer has bit the dust, and we need a new one to print our final drafts and proudly display them in the classroom and hallway.

My students work together to critique and edit pieces before they are published. As they edit, they develop grammar skills needed for success. The printer will assist us as we develop our editing skills.

This project also contains resources that will allow our writing lessons to grow in creativity. As we learn together as writers, we prepare for later in life success. As Donalyn Miller states, "Reading is the inhale, and writing is the exhale" or life.
