My Students

My students are amazing scholars who love to read and write! They are so creative and show a high interest in drawing about characters and the way the characters feel instead of just writing about them.

These amazing children come from different backgrounds and all of the don't have access to drawing materials.

While the socio-economic backgrounds may differ, they share a love for Language Arts and drawing! Their eyes light up when they read about Emily Dickinson and learn about her life!

My Project

With these new materials, my students will be able to express their love of books and learning by being able to not only write about what their books mean to them, but to actually draw it out!

The highlighters will allow my students to highlight texts so they can see the importance of certain words and lines in any given texts.

It will also allow them to dive deeper into books and to annotate text. The color pencils will allow for my students to have a creative outlet for the students whose strong point may be drawing instead of writing.
