Mrs. Creecy from Durham NC is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Write On!

My students need 6 resources including a classroom writing center, a classroom mailbox, and kindergarten writing supplies to help them learn how to write.

My Students

My kindergarten students are ready to learn all about writing. They try to write notes to their parents and friends all the time. The problem is that most people cannot read the writing of a five-year-old. My boys and girls need the appropriate materials to help them learn how to write.

I have 25 kindergarten students who come from all walks of life.

Some of them had never been to preschool when they arrived in my room. Kindergarten students come to school eager to learn everything, but some things are just more difficult than other things. Learning how to write a story when you do not even know the alphabet can be a daunting task.

My Project

Since kindergarten students are required to be able to write a story by the end of the school year, I have to help them develop the necessary skills. The materials I am requesting will help my students learn how to write. The classroom writing center, the classroom mailbox, and the kindergarten writing supplies will provide the materials we need to learn how to become kindergarten writers.

Learning how to write is quite an accomplishment for a five-year-old.

Kindergarten students are so proud when they are able to write their own notes, letters, and stories. Having materials that are exciting and engaging will help my children "Write On".
