I teach second grade at a very challenging school. We have about 70% free or reduced lunch students, as well as a large ESL population. Most students live with either a working single parent or a parent who does not speak English, and therefore don't have help at home with homework. Most of my students also do not like to write, which is required in their homework every day. In order to motivate my students, as well as give them an assignment that they can complete on their own, I would like to have them write in a "Diary" every day. Students love new, colorful journals but often they do not have the materials they want or need for school. I am writing this proposal to fund a new, colorful and exciting journal for each of my students to use as a diary for homework. I want my students to love writing as well as be responsible for homework, even if parents are not able to be involved. A brand new journal would motivate my students to complete their homework.
