Mrs. R. from Minot ND is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Writing Isn't Easy!

My students need a reading and writing center in the classroom to see displayed writing samples for them to follow.

My Students

A typical day in a first-grade classroom is busy, to say the least! We move to the front of the room to meet and discuss lessons often. My students find it very difficult to see the examples we do together because I do not have a nice big writing stand on which to display my writing examples.

My first-grade class is very eager to learn.

What they accomplish every day is amazing. It never ceases to amaze me how much information they soak up in one day. Our school is a great school, and I am very lucky to have the supplies and materials that I have. However, like all schools, money is limited!

My Project

Writing is a HUGE piece of our everyday routine and an even bigger piece of the Common Core standards. We write every single day in first grade. My students come up to the front of the room and squish together as we talk about the subject we will be writing about and try their best to see the writing sample I provide for them on an 8 by 11-inch piece of paper. If I had the requested writing center I would be able to provide my students with the same writing samples, but in a much larger font!

Writing is something my first graders will have to do for the rest of their lives!

They may not have to write with paper and pencil, but they will still need the skills to write reports, lesson plans, or even lists. Having a writing center in my room will help my first graders be able to see the writing samples we do together before they go to their seats to do them on their own. This means less walking up to the front of the room to see and more writing time for them!
