Help me give my students the KinderWriting narrative writing curriculum and mentor texts.

My Students

Kindergartners are wonderful because they love everything. They are excited to come to school every day and learn something new. My students love learning, and my job is to keep that fire burning.

We live in a rural ranching community in Colorado where more than a third of students come from low-income households.

Our school district does not have the resources to purchase everything my kindergartners need. I want the best for my students, and I need your help. Thank you so much for your support!

My Project

I want to be the best teacher for my students. I strive for excellence. I will admit that writing is one of the hardest things to teach.

I need a writing curriculum to help me best teach my students.

The KinderWriting curriculum has each day mapped out. There will be a mini-lesson, independent writing, and share time. The mentor texts go along with the mini-lessons. There are twenty lessons that are all tied to the Common Core Standards.

I believe this curriculum will benefit my students for years to come. Thank you for supporting my little kindergarten authors.
