Can you imagine being in a room filled with fifth graders who are simultaneously asking, "what should I write about?" Well, I am faced with that very scary, yet real, situation. The problem is, aside from the thesis I just wrote, I am not really much of a writer. Sure, I can write a great research paper, and I have certainly mastered the five paragraph essay, but CREATIVE writing, forget it! I know that writing could be an amazing experience for my children, but I need the materials to make it happen. I need the supplies, and some "teacher support." When I say "teacher support," I mean, quite literally, I need some ideas. I want to have the latest research from the leading experts so I can actually teach my children how to figure out what it is that they really WANT to write about. Please help me purchase supplies such as chart paper, markers, teaching guides, and overhead transparencies to help make dreams come true.
