My Students

My students are very motivated to learn. The students are well-behaved, friendly, and caring towards one another. They love to come to school to learn. Our school is working hard to "Build a Community of Lifelong Learners." The school is a positive environment and a safe haven for our students.

My students attend a Title I school, where the majority of students receive free or reduced-price lunch.

The students in my class love school; every day the students come in smiling and ready to learn.

My Project

This project will allow us to create class books. Our writing units of study is all about turning students into authors. My students are very proud of their completed books. This project will allow them to have the books they make for years to come. We will use the materials in this project to make and bind our books. We will use the copy paper to print writing paper for our Writing Units of Study. We will use the laminator and lamination sheets to create bookcovers and we will use the binding machine to bind our books.

Writing encourages creativity and exploration.

Daily writing encourages a creative flow that can help students use their imaginations, explore possibilities, and engage in storytelling. Creative allows students to explore vocabulary, concepts, and writing styles that they wouldn't risk in a formal essay or heavily graded assignment.
