Wonderful Writing

My students need an electric stapler to finish their writing projects and watercolor pencils to illustrate their writing.

My Students

A day doesn't go by in Room 24 without a student asking, "Can we please have more time to write?". This year my students have been voracious writers. The only drawback to our writer's workshop is the quality of our supplies.

Our small rural Northern California school serves students in Kindergarten - 3rd grade.

We are a Title 1/Program Improvement School where 60% or more of our students are English Language Learners. Our students love coming to school and our staff is working hard to provide a balanced education for every student. I love teaching here because my students appreciate even the smallest things. They love to read, write,learn new math concepts,sing, do art, explore, garden, and play. I believe they deserve to have a well-equipped classroom.

My Project

My students love to write. This year they have written nonfiction books, personal narratives, opinion papers, how to books, pen pal letters, poems, joke books, holiday themed stories, and so much more. One of the challenges they have faced is that our classroom staplers will only staple through five sheets of paper. With an electric heavy duty stapler, they will be able to combine their multiple pages into a complete book. Also, the water color pencils will help add color and texture to their illustrations. I can't wait to see the smiles on my students' faces as they read their finished projects to our class and to other classes in our school!

Being able to complete the writing process by producing a neat finished product is very important to my students.

We go on book tours around the school sharing our stories and practicing our reading. With a new stapler and water color pencils, my students will be able to successfully complete their writing projects. With these new supplies, you will make a difference in the lives of many deserving students.
