My Students

The first grade students in my classroom are fun, energetic, and witty! They are also diverse in ethnicity, economics, and academics. We are a Title I, dual-language school in a Seattle neighborhood. The students in my class, and within our school, speak a wide variety of languages including Spanish, Vietnamese, Cambodian, and Somali among others. However, one common denominator is that they all work hard and want more. They want more knowledge, they want more out of life, and they love to learn! In order to do that, they need the materials that can help them be successful and continue to want to be lifelong learners.

My Project

My students are so very creative. They love to take their newly sharpened pencils, writing paper, and crayons and get started on a brand new story.

We take writing serious in our first grade class, it is an important skill that will last their entire life, because of this, we need serious resources to aid in our instruction.

Help me give my first grade students writing skills that will last them their entire life with this project. We are asking for Jennifer Serravallo`s The Writing Strategy book to use as an instructional guide along with her suggested "Go-To" books for our writing library.
