My Students

My classroom is very diverse. I have English Language Learners from foreign countries and students from right here in our town of Clinton, IA.

Many of my students are from low income families and most are not able to purchase the school supplies that are required let alone a wish list item.

My students will be using the journals requested on a daily basis. These composition books will be very important tools for my students to grow in their learning and writing.

Giving them the tools to practice their writing, to write sentences, and to express their ideas, will set them up for success in the classroom. They will be able to practice writing their alphabet, names, and sentences using the paper and pencils.

By donating to this project, you are helping my students become independent and successful learners.

They may not have a lot at home, but when in my classroom, I want them to never have to worry about the tools needed to be successful. Having the basic tools to begin their writing in 1st grade, will help to set them up for success.

My Project

My first grade students need journals that are "just right" for their needs. College lined composition books are not lined for little learners that are learning to write on the lines appropriately. These primary lined composition books are perfect for first grade learners. The book uses the red, blue and dotted lines for correct letter formations.

No only will the lines in these composition books help students use better penmanship, they will help students become better writers and enable them to get their ideas on paper and express themselves through writing.

For the youngest of learners there is also blank space to add a picture to accompany their writing.
