Grant Title

Read to Write!

Synopsis

This grant will allow my team of first grade teachers to obtain an “in-house” collection of read-aloud picture books that will support our teaching of the six traits of writing: Ideas, Organization, Voice, Word Choice, Sentence Fluency, and Conventions. Along with the traits, the read-alouds will exemplify the genres of writing: Narrative, Expository, and Persuasive. The read-alouds will be utilized during each first grade classroom’s “Writer’s Workshop” two to three times a week for the entire school year. All first graders will benefit from the book collection!
