My Students

The students at our school are amazing children. I am fortunate to be a teacher at this school. We are in a low-income school and some of my students may not have the same opportunities that many other children might have. These students have demonstrated resiliency and an eagerness to learn even though many have experienced difficult challenges in their lives.

I want to inspire my students to be curious and creative learners.

I want them to look forward to their learning opportunities. I want my students to know that school is a place they can try their ideas and grow.

My Project

My students are very eager to learn how to write in cursive. Many students have made up their own version of cursive writing because they are so excited to learn this skill! I would like to give them the opportunity to learn actual cursive since they are so enthusiastic and motivated for this.

Help me give my students the chance to perfect and refine their printing skills and then move forward with the cursive writing they are so anxious to learn!

When students are excited and motivated to learn it is the best time to introduce that skill. My second graders very much want to learn cursive writing and will enjoy having these materials available to work with when they have completed their regular assignments. I would like to allow them to take these home at the end of the year, so any students who have not completed the books can use them throughout the summer break.
