My students need 5 writing supplies so they can learn how to effectively implement the writing process to increase fluency and articulation in their writing.
Can you imagine not being able to express yourself? How can teachers give their students a voice?
We are a public school in New Jersey that services grades PreK-5th grade.
My students are in fifth grade in an urban school district. The students that come to my classroom have been placed in a homogeneous setting. Unfortunately, they are below grade level and receive small group instruction for reading and language arts.
Last year, I learned that color paper helps the students learn the writing process. For example: The yellow paper is for prewriting, green is used for rough drafts, blue is for the revising, pink is for proofreading, and when we publish our work by typing it on the computer. The student colored paper matches the teacher's modeling and displayed examples. I purchased from Goodwill 6 pocket plastic menu folders and students place the colored paper inside each pocket. Students use dry eraser markers during conferences with peer and the teacher to write suggestions and comments. The corrections written on the plastic cover give the students ownership since their original paper remains intact.
Students need to learn that writing is a process.
Through modeling, group, team, and independent practice students will learn how to engage their audience. Student also, learn how to offer and receive suggestions through conferencing. Students have to learn how to build stamina for writing and how they can improve their writing. Next, breaking lessons into manageable steps will help build comprehension, writing fluency, and reflection when communicating with an audience.
