Ms. Sloane from Chireno TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students a calligraphy station to learn to write in modern calligraphy.
Our school is one campus with grades Pre-K through seniors, all on one campus. Most grades have fewer than 30 students. We live in a very rural area.
My classes consist of seventh through twelfth grades in English, debate, business, and technology classes, and my students who are primarily from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
These students are often in eight classes a day while still active in extracurricular activities and while also helping their families through second jobs, chores, or babysitting younger siblings while the parents work multiple jobs.
As the years have passed, it seems less and less focus is put on handwriting, and it shows when students reach the high school level. They can barely print neatly, and writing in cursive is a non-existent skill.
A student recently saw a "hand lettering" book on my desk that I had bought as a gift and expressed great interest in learning, and as she shared that information with her peers, a group of them became excited at the idea of learning to write in calligraphy.
Next year, I would like to set up a handwriting station that students can use to learn and practice when finished with their work or before and after school. This project is for books that teach the skill, pens to learn and practice with, and paper to practice on. I tried to find a variety of books, papers, and pens so that students could learn and practice on their level.
