The Write Stuff

Help me give my students instant sentence tiles, word fun book sets 1 and 2, and laminating pouches. We will use these to study how to write sentences.

My Students

Twenty-first century skills involve problem solving and critical thinking in the highest form. My students are struggling to develop these skills in a manner that is relevant to their age.

Our class consists of 21 second grade boys and girls of varying academic skills.

The one thing that they all have in common is their enthusiasm for learning. Many of my students are from poverty level or just barely over. Several come from one parent homes. We have worked very hard on our social skills because they go to latchkey, a babysitter, or stay with an older sibling because that one parent works at a minimum wage job.

My Project

I am asking for word fun book sets to help my students learn parts of speech. This skill is necessary to understand the writing process.

I want them to use the instant sentence tiles to help them write books that we will laminate and include in our library.

This will show them the power of literacy, both in reading and writing!

These books will then go home with them to read to family members. At the end of the year, they can trade or keep what they have written, similar to a community book swap. Students will become authors and readers.
