Writing Center for Future Authors

Help me give my students a writing center and reading games to practice their writing and comprehension.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are very caring and incredibly helpful. They love to read, share their learnings and thoughts with one another and keep this 3rd grade teacher on her toes. Whenever I ask a question, at least 5 hands shoot up because they're so excited to learn!

We are in a neighborhood where education is a priority, but finances tend to be a little tight.

Many of my students do not have access to a computer at home and need to go to the library for resources.

My Project

If my project gets funded, the students will have an area where they will have the opportunity to create collaborative writing pieces. Right now, my students don't have a designated area to work on their writing in groups, and I know that this writing center will make a tremendous difference in bringing enthusiasm and excitement about writing.

The games will be used during centers to reinforce reading comprehension skills, and again teach them how to collaborate with one another.

They won't need to have a teacher next to them and they'll be able to practice taking turns, sharing ideas, and reading all on their own. This is important to be come independent authors.
