I teach at a Title I school in which 100% of students receive free breakfast and free lunch. Our school has a racially and ethnically diverse population. I have a classroom full of excited six-year-old children which include English Language Learners, Slow Learners, High Achievers and Special Education Students.
My students are eager to learn, however their many differences create a challenge!
They are excited about school and have loads of energy. Often, the complexities of learning are an obstacle they need to overcome. Accepting differences is part of that process. Teaching tolerance along with academics is absolutely essential in the classroom!
With age-appropriate lined paper, three-sided pencils for easier gripping and an organizer, my students will be able to write, edit and present their individual stories. Writing has a direct correlation to reading.
If you want good readers, encourage good writing.
Students will be encouraged to use different kinds of sentences and use even use dialogue when writing fiction.
If students choose to write non-fiction, they must first read about the subject and be able to translate that information using their own words.
This opportunity will reinforce what is being learned in the classroom and make the stories relevant to their lives. They will then learn to be illustrators and add to the details of their stories through pictures.
