Students need a variety of methods in order to become excellent writers. And, since my school in the inner-city does not have a structured, multi-faceted writing program, it's up to me to create it! I am requesting a professional book to help me understand how to support children to become outstanding writers and some classroom materials that would make writing and word play fun and engaging- a set of word games books to boost vocabulary, a set of individual dry erase boards to practice all aspects of writing, and a cool swivel-stapler so that we may publish our student books! All of my students, English Learners one and all, would benefit from these great resources and they could be used again and again over the years. Thank you so much for your consideration! We'll send you a book as soon as it's published!
