My Students

My students come to me with a love for learning but not always the skills they need to do it. We work together to help them learn the basic social skills they need to work together with their classmates while learning an increasingly rigorous curriculum.

They attend a 100% free and reduced-price lunch school.

Often, they do not go to a preschool that adequately prepares them for modern-day kindergarten. Their bright spirits help them work to overcome these challenges. Together, we make their learning possible!

My Project

My students are becoming writers and are growing in their confidence. They have gone from students who "share" their stories through random lines and markings to students who are writing books and stories with multiple sentences. But all this writing is hard for them to keep track of!

Help my students keep track of their writing by putting it in the "write" place!

These binders and zipper pouches will allow my students to have an organizational system that will not only help them keep track of their writing but allow them to build a portfolio of their writing. As the year progresses, they will see their writing growth all contained in the binder. It will give them a sense of pride and increased self-confidence.

The binders and zipper pouches in this project will help my students keep their writing together, organized and make it clear where they are in their writing process. They will not waste valuable writing time searching for pencils, erasers or spacer sticks. With your help, everything they need to succeed will all be in one place.
