My Students

My students are 6th grade Writing, Reading and History students in a public school in California. We have a range of students at all ability levels. They spend half of their school day in my classroom, so we vary our writing activities to keep them engaged.

These resources can make a world of difference in their motivation to write and willingness to give their best effort.

All students need opportunities to develop their writing skills, and these correction tapes will help them understand the writing process as well as boost their readiness for achieving state standards. These books are student-recommended and sure to engage them.

My Project

All of my students want to become better writers and readers. Having an opportunity correct their mistakes with correction tape will interest and engage them. We are always looking to make connections between our curriculum and the outside world. Practice makes perfect!

We need correction tape for writing and high interest books that will motivate them, boost their love of writing, and develop their writing and reading skills.

My students write about the books they read every day. These mini correction tapes are valuable tools to help them produce their finest work. This will set them up for success in other areas of learning, as well as in high school and beyond.
