My Students

“I’m on fire”! That is how one of my second graders described the success he was having during Writer’s Workshop one day. My classroom is comprised of 21 second graders who consider themselves authors.

Confident writers also exhibit confidence in all subjects.

Writer’s Workshop is a routine that is taught in my classroom everyday. We learn how to begin a writing piece from the beginning brainstorm stage, to drafting, revising and editing, and finally publishing. When students “publish” a writing piece they can not wait to share it with their classmates, and with students from other classes. We display our published writing in the hallway for others to enjoy. Often they will find a note or two attached to their writing from another student, teacher and even administrators.

It is truly amazing to see my students tackle writing in other content areas such as science when they write to explain the water cycle. Or in social studies when they write to share their opinion about a major event. And in math students can write to explain a mathematical process. Learning the writing process and developing a love for writing is a lifelong skill.

My Project

My second grade students are at the perfect age to mold into life long writers and learners. Building their confidence now is crucial in achieving this goal. I am asking for three HP laptops for my students to use in our classroom. Having the technology available to publish a completed writing piece would be extremely motivating. Imagine the stories they will tell.

In addition to publishing works of writing these three Chromebooks will be used to conduct research, to engage in Google Classroom where students can access and submit assignments as well as collaborate with teachers and peers and to deliver interventions for struggling students and enrichment for other students.

Thank you for considering my project.
