How Can We Learn To Write Without Paper?

My students need paper to learn how to write and an electric pencil sharpener.

My Students

Help be the change in these students' lives and support them through their education.

My students are very energetic first graders.

They are just in the beginning stages of their education and working on learning the basics, which will affect their futures. My students are hard workers who are working towards a bright future. .

My Project

The resources I am asking for are paper and a pencil sharpener. Ask yourself how can a first grader learn how to write when there is nothing to write on. Please help my classroom and students learn how to write by providing them paper to write on. .

This project will allow my students to have a similar learning opportunity as other students who have paper to write on and a pencil sharpener to sharpen their pencils with.
