The Write Stuff for Early Writers and Families

My students need pencil pouches, crayons, and pencils to take home so they can continue to be inspired and experiment with their new writing voices!

My Students

My students come from many different backgrounds as well as different parts of the city--from Paradise Valley to Lincoln Park to Mira Mesa, San Diego. The majority of my students are English learners and work every day to build their language and vocabulary and they apply their newly learned skills in their writing each day.

My students are just learning that each experience in writing is an opportunity to communicate and connect with one another.

They are the kind of writers that get inspired by people and events around them. They are filled with ideas of ways to express themselves and their thinking through their pictures and words. And they believe that they have the power to effect change and make the world a better place to live!

My Project

I present several family learning workshops throughout the year across several school sites in San Diego. As part of these workshops, parents have an opportunity to see how teachers support children's writing in the classroom and then take a few minutes to write together with their child.

With limited time throughout the day to teach our students what they need to know and be able to do, families can help!

We can help parents continue the learning experiences at home. During the workshops, I will introduce the writing kits (pencil pouches, crayons, pencils, and notebooks) to families and provide them with ideas to inspire their children to keep on writing and share their ideas and thinking.
