Ms. Gonzalez from La Porte TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a collection of Patricia Polacco's heart-warming stories that model how to write from the heart.
I can remember only one occasion when my students have sat with rapt attention, and that was when I shared a personal story about how I struggled as a child with feelings of unworthiness. Suddenly, everyone was quiet. Everyone's eyes were on me. I didn't need to correct one child's behavior. They could sense deep in their souls that this story was important, because they could relate.
My students have a deep desire to know their feelings and express them in a way that will make other people want to listen.
As their writing teacher, I have a deep desire to show them how to do just that!
"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all." - Aristotle
Suicide attempts are increasing among elementary aged students.
This is what we learned in our first teacher training of the school year. Our children are crying out for help.
As a writing teacher, my job is to teach them to write well, but first and foremost I have a classroom of souls who are aching for someone to pay attention to their feelings more than their grammar usage.
I want to teach my students how to write in a way that is not only effective and will grab the reader's attention, but that will simultaneously help them learn to express their many complex emotions. Writing is a tool for healing, and my students have a lot to heal.
Patricia Polacco's books are affectionately known as tear-jerkers. Her writing is powerfully beautiful because she writes about connection and self-worth through heart-warming stories. I want my students to study how Polacco tells a story, so they can learn how to tell theirs.
Help me heal their hearts through the power of writing.
