I teach third grade in an elementary school in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. All of our children get free lunch and most of them come from low income families that don't speak English. When it comes to writing, the children simply hate it. Many of them hate it because it is too difficult for them and they truly struggle with it. I want them to enjoy writing as much as I did growing up. There is so much you can say in a sentence, if you put it in the right words, and use the words the correct way. Because English is their second language, most of them struggle with plurals, action words, descriptive language, etc. That is why I am asking you to please help us in making our writing and reading skills stronger, and making us enjoy it!!
