Hooray! This project is fully funded

We are first graders, and this is an exciting time for us! Every day, we are learning about writing and we want to become better at it. As a teacher, I provide my kids with as many materials that I can buy (i.e. pencils, crayons, printing paper and even folders) for the writers' workshop. But there are many things I need help buying. Since I teach in a Bronx public school, and my kids come from very low-income families, the supplies I've received from the parents are far from sufficient. My school does not provide for consumable stuff such as paper, pencils, crayons, markers, coloring pencils and composition notebooks. We don't even have a most-needed pencil sharpener. Kids need color and fun materials in their life to get excited about learning and writing. If they can imagine an exciting published piece of writing, with colors and creative binding, they are motivated to work through the long steps of revising and editing their first narratives. I hope you will help my first graders become the next best writers. As a cheesy TV commercial says, we hope you can help us, because 'we're worth it':)
