Mrs. Venetti from Warren OH is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

You Can Make Anything By Writing-CS Lewis

My students need a variety of writing and illustrating tools (markers, colored pencils, writing center) to enhance their love of writing books! I believe that with an organized and well stocked writing center they will love to write even more !

My Students

I teach in a low income/high poverty school district. We are 100% free lunch. Many of my students come to school with little to no parent support. They love to come to school and work very hard. They have very few life experiences and love to learn about new people and places.

My students love to write!

They want to write books every day. They are really good at using an author's craft to develop their own stories. I am constantly making books and updating supplies in my writing center so they can create their own books. They write fiction, non-fiction, poetry and comic books based on subjects we are studying or just stories about their lives and their friends!

I would love to update my writing center with different types of paper and writing materials. I would also like to incorporate different types of dictionaries they could use to enhance their spelling and writing skills.

Writing about reading is a big focus in second grade and the skills they learn now will help them to become better writers in the future. Data shows that students are entering third grade with a writing deficit and participating in Writing Workshops helps!

My Project

My students use paper and crayons every day in writing workshop to create wonderful books. Your donation will help me to create and organized writing center that will be stocked with colorful paper and art supplies.

My little authors and illustrators will be thrilled to have these supplies available when they are getting their thoughts and words down on paper.

Writing is a daily activity in my classroom, so having access to construction paper, colored pencils and markers will enhance the creativity that my students show when they are writing their books. They will truly enjoy the supplies on hand.
