To energize my students' creativity with writing games and books 


What will be done with my students

My students have full access to my Writers' Resource Shelf where they can find How To books about a variety of genres as well as books about a variety of topics they may need to research for their stories.
Additionally, my students earn game days where they get to play with words and story building activities. 


Benefits to my students

My students are excited to write! They are given to opportunity to write in a wide variety of genres, explore genres and topics in books, and go on field trips to art museums and Ringling College. All of the supplies I am requesting here will add to their available resources and keep their creativity flowing. 


Describe the Students

My students run the gamut. Hollins is a low socioeconomic school. I have high performing Cambridge students. I have students who joined the class because they were once in my journalism class and liked me. Funny, but those kids have learned to love to write and, guess what, their reading improved! Funny how that works, right?


Budget Narrative

I was granted money for books and writing resource games in a previous grant. The items listed here are all classroom supplies (from Office Depot) that help the class run smoothly and efficiently which add to the calming atmosphere I try to create for my students.
