Making Lifelong Learners

My students need a microphone to share their writing in our author's chair.

My Students

Do you remember the excitement of reading your story in front of the class after you did a fabulous job? My students love writing, but need to be motivated to share their writing with the class in a fun way.

Most of my first grade students are economically disadvantaged.

I teach at a Title 1 school and they do not have many things other children and classrooms have. With your help, my first grade students will have great memories of a fun first grade year!

My Project

My students will be excited to share their writing with the class with the use of a microphone. Writing is one way to share feelings and experiences. Sharing a piece of writing, not only makes the author feel good, but also the audience. My students will also have more interactive phonics games to use during literacy centers. Literacy centers is a great way for students to learn, while having fun. Often, they don't even realize their learning. Shhhhh don't tell them our secret. ;)

My first graders will not only feel special to read in a microphone, but also proud of themselves for their own completing a piece of writing that is good enough to share with their peers.
