Wonderful Writers Need a Workable Writing Space

My students need pencils, a pencil sharpener and index cards to work on writing as a group and individually. The chart stand and charts will be used for group work.

My Students

"I'm done!" is what you often hear when students finish writing an assignment. Editing and revising are skills that need to be modeled and practiced. The chart stand and charts will help us work on cooperative paragraphs that will be edited together.

Our students are middle to lower income with a variety of family groupings.

The school is located in the middle of a neighborhood with a middle school across the street. Most students walk or get rides to school, and there is paid before and after school care on our campus. The population has been changing in recent years, and we have just become a Title I school. We are serving more students who receive free and reduced-price lunch, and there seem to be more single parent families. We are doing our best to meet the needs of all students while maintaining our high expectations. We believe that all children can learn.

My Project

The chart stand and writing materials will help students become capable, competent writers. We will learn to edit and revise by working cooperatively which is another important skill that students need to practice. Students will work in teams to create sentences, and those sentences will be put together to form a paragraph, with the help of the students. By working as a team, the process will be less threatening so that all can participate. The students will then be able to transfer these skills to their own writing.

This project will allow me to keep our writing accessible to my students.

They will be able to use the group models to help them in future writing assignments. They will feel ownership for the writing that was produced by the group. The ability to express themselves in writing is a very important skill for students to have. We need to give them the tools to be successful writers in school and in life.
