My Students

My 5th and 6th grade scholars attend an all girls public school in Baltimore city serving girls in grades 5-8. Our school offers a supportive 21st century learning environment for scholars to reach their maximum potential through rigorous academic course work, character development and leadership opportunities.

My students are eager to learn and are buzzing writers.

Although the scholars are ready to learn the school and the community don't always have the resources to needed to make the learning environment the best it could be.

My Project

Our classroom is using the Lucy Calkins Writer's Workshop model in writing class. While we have tables in our classroom for the students to sit, we need a close place where we can gather as a class for the teacher to teach the mini lesson. Typically in a writer's workshop everyone gathers at a carpet to watch and engage as the teacher teaches the mini lesson. Our classroom does not have a carpet to successfully engage the writer's workshop model.

While on the carpet students need clipboard to write on to capture notes and ideas.

These items together pair up to give our girls the ultimate writer's workshop experience.
