Sketchbooks Enhance Reading and Writing

My students need 150 sketchbooks/journals.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Students who may be struggling with reading and writing can gain more confidence and learn to read and write and enjoy journaling by first drawing a picture of their writing. I have over 500 students and to get a sketchbook for all of them would be beyond my budget. I think it is really important for each elementary student to have their own sketchbook. I need a small sketchbook/journal for each one of my students. I believe these students reading and writing skills will be enhanced through using these sketchbooks in class and in outside of class assignments. By becoming a donor you will help make it possible for every elementary student at out school to receive their own sketchbook/journal.
