My students need writing materials such as the appropriate writing composition notebooks for a successful school year!
I am a first grade teacher at an inner city school. I am privileged to work with 50 amazing children who are eager to learn and use any learning tools they are given. My students have a tremendous amount of learning to do this upcoming year, and most of it happens from repetition and practice.
They like to read, participate, and ask questions!
Working as an elementary teacher in a low-income and high poverty inner-city district is challenging itself. My students face several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Whichever challenge they meet, I strive to provide my students with the creative and meaningful learning experience they deserve!
Students at my school struggle with writing so we have an intense ninety minute literacy block in hopes they will become better readers and writers! Students who are not working with me work by themselves at their tables on writing. Students use loose leaf paper to write their stories. Often students' work gets lost or gets crumbled in their areas. It is very hard to keep track of the progress of their writing!
If each student had a notebook it would maximize student-learning time and maintain the students' attention and focus.
They would date each journal entry so their progress could easily be seen. The distractions would be minimal which would allow student learning time to maximize.
I would also be able to monitor the students working independently at their desks because I would see how much they accomplished each day!
I very much appreciate your consideration in this matter and sincerely hope you will view my request favorably and provide the requisite funds.
My students and I would be so excited to be able to use the notebooks in our classroom.
