My Students

My students are the first ones to attend a brand new public school in Long Island City, Queens, with grades K and 1. They are ethnically, linguistically, and economically diverse, including English Language Learners who speak over 12 different home languages.

They love to read and write and we teach literacy and math in authentic ways.

Books are shared, recommended, acted out, and generally just LOVED in our school. Writing is authentic and students write stories and teaching books about things they know. Students also study Science, Social Studies, Spanish and engineering and they look for connections across all topics and subjects.

My Project

These materials will provide my students with a fully stocked Writing Center in our classroom. The Writing Center is where student writers can go to find paper, special pens or pencils, or post it.

Writers learn how to use the tools and then get what they need when they need it.

They are the bosses of their own writing journeys!

They can use the sentence strips to label the room, using their new kindergarten writing skills for an authentic purpose. The clipboards allow them the ​freedom to write in different spaces throughout the room, using the print environment to strengthen their own writing. The organizer cart will keep paper choices neat and accessible to students. Special flair pens up the motivation to WRITE MORE, edit and revise and the cups keep all these pieces organized!
