I am a first grade teacher at P.S.169 in Brooklyn, New York. The majority of my students come from homes where English is not their first language. We are a Title I school which means that about 89% of the students receive free lunch. My students have become terrific writers. I am amazed at their detailed and creative stories. We are working on stories where "the stories match pictures." This is a strategy they use when they are reading and do not know a word. Look at the picture to see if there are clues to help figure out the words. For Writers' Workshop, we are trying to write for readers. One student writes a story and another student has to read his/her partner's story and illustrate. I would like to see their illustrations have as much details as their stories. I tell them that pictures tell stories . I would love for them to have a variety of tools to use illustrate their stories. Presently, the only tool they have are their crayons. Colored pencils and thin-line markers would be the perfect addition for their illustrations. The colored pencils and markers would make the perfect published book for each child.
