Rocketbooks to Take Shareable Writing to the Cloud and Beyond

My students need Rocketbooks to be able to share and organize their writing with their fellow classmates, Kindergarten grade, school, and family at home.

My Students

I teach in one of the largest school districts in the United States. In my classroom, about 70% of my students are on free or reduced-price lunch, and almost all of my students are English Language Learners.

My students come to class with huge smiles on their faces, ready to learn and grow together.

Their self-consciousness to speak in class makes it a challenge to acquire the language, but with the right tools, I know they will be successful. Most of my students come with little to no school experience, and by the end of the year, they have worked very hard to be ready and capable first graders.

My Project

Rocketbooks are an amazing piece of cloud-based technology that will be an amazing writing resource for my students. Rocketbooks are helpful in making writing for my students more enjoyable, engaging, and easy to share and keep forever!

When you can share your writing simply and quickly with friends, family, and teachers the real magic begins.

I love the possibilities the Rocketbook provides as my students are engaged in their writing throughout the year.

The Rocketbooks will allow students to draw and write during school with a variety of colored pencils, crayons, and markers that we already have. After a student fills their Rocketbook with amazing work, the magic begins.

The Rocketbook allows me to scan their colorful works of literary masterpieces into the Cloud, likely my Google Drive. Once there, it can be shared with the class as a reflection of the lesson, emailed and shared with parents to show their students' progress, and may be kept as a digital portfolio of their work to help me and future teachers guide our instruction. These scanned works will be dated and sorted by the icons at the bottom of the page.

I send home mountains of papers home of students' work; unfortunately a lot of that work gets ruined in their bags from spills, mangled by 5-year-old temper tantrums about their (self-perceived) subpar work, or simply forgotten in a crinkly mess at the bottom of their bag.

When I send their work home by email or shared Google Drive, parents see their work, engage in their child's learning, and can not only print and post them on the fridge, but can put them on their social networks for their whole family to enjoy a budding writer's progress.

I hope you can support these worthwhile students!
