Help me give my students many more literacy lessons and crafts. With this ink, laminating pouches and chart paper pads, I will be able to increase their exposure to the written word. This is huge in kindergarten.
This is a bright and active group of five- and six-year-old children. They love to create and tell stories. They love to read and be read to. They are quickly learning to work together, which is a vital skill in our world. My children work in small groups and independently throughout the day.
We grow in all areas by practicing and playing together.
Writing throughout the day in science, social studies, math, and even in art helps us in so many ways. We get noisy, but we learn so much together. We need supplies to grow as readers, writers, and illustrators. We need to show the colors of our ideas. There is so much to learn.
Kindergarten is the first time many young learners see their own words in writing. With this ink, I will be able to put their words into the computer, print them out and let the students illustrate their work.
The students dictate to me often.
With these easel pads, we will be able to post this dictation around the room, allowing the kids to use their own words in their later writings.
These laminating pouches will let us laminate and use our work later. We will be able to edit right on the original without losing our original thoughts. We will be able to keep our work longer. We will be able to participate in things like Write the Room, which lets us practice skills on clipboards throughout the room.
