Help me give my students access to powerful literature to help them become excellent writers.

My Students

We are a diverse classroom of 32 Kindergarten students. We are a Title l school. Every child in my class receives a school breakfast and lunch 100% free of charge each day. Even though my students have faced adversity in their life, they come to school ready to learn each day. I could not ask for a better group of students to have in my classroom!

Help give my students access to amazing literature to help them become stronger writers!

We are thankful for you time to look over our project and helping to make our year a successful one!

My Project

Please help me to provide my students with strong influential literature for our writers workshop. Exposing students to these powerful books will show them they to can be just like these authors. Students will feel empowered by the words and be able to see themselves as authors.

Even though my students may be small, they are ready to learn and grow with your help.

I hope to extended their knowledge on the types of book others write as we explore the many different styles of writing throughout the year. These books will not only help the students in this years class, but also many students to come as well.
