Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Please help us out! There are several new Language Arts strategies I'd like to implement in the next school year, but we're lacking the materials we need! We need materials such as post-it notes, highlighters, and colored copy paper to implement research-based language arts strategies.

Reading and writing skills are are essential in the world we live in today.

I want my students to have all of the skills necessary to be successful citizens. The students I'll have in the next school year are a great group of kids, who will need a little extra help with reading and writing. It is my hope that I can give them the extra support they need with the materials from this project!

My Project

With the materials I will receive with this grant, I will be able to implement many of the strategies I've learned in Kristina Smekens' workshops. I will have many of the tools necessary to create more powerful and effective reading and writing lessons, and to put the strategies I've learned in the Smekens workshops into practice! Some of the materials we need are colored copy paper, highlighters, a timer (for timed writings), and post-it notes. We also need a few resource books. Students will use all of these materials for various research-based reading and writing strategies!

Reading and writing are necessary life skills.

Please donate to this project to help us acquire the materials needed to help my students gain the skills they need to be successful in life! Thank you in advance for your donations!
