My Students

My kindergarten students are EXCITED to learn that they can transfer their unique thoughts through WRITING. They should not be concerned about writing utensils and paper. They could use and would appreciate their very own journals and their very own pens that flow right along with their imagination.

In Connecticut, students can start kindergarten at four years old.

The curriculum is extensive and it can be difficult to inspire them. Yet, my students enjoy writing about their lives and being able to tell their very own stories. No matter what their age or ability, I want my students to believe that can be empowered authors.

My Project

I am requesting 8 packs of flair pens and 4 packs of writing journals. My students will learn that they can convey meaning through their writing. They will learn they too are AUTHORS! During Writer's Workshop, my students will be able to draw and write their stories in their very own journal. They will be able to keep these journals for years to come so that they may look back at their writing and see their growth. Through the use of these materials, my young students will feel an "ownership" over their writing and a sense of empowerment as authors.

The journals and pens will make a huge difference in the daily lives of my students.

Writing will allow my young students a sense of freedom. Through your generosity, you will be able to cultivate a new generation of thoughtful thinkers and writers with a love of literacy.
