NaNoWriMo

 NaNoWriMo

National Novel Writing Month

November, 2011

November was  a busy month for grade eight students as they composed novels to meet word goals to write their own novels. We watched our progress on our class page: Ms.Edwards and the students checked in each week to track their progress and those of our Iowa colleagues in Mr Boylen's and Mrs. Kreb's classes.

We followed the NaNoWriMo lessons and helped each other. I worked on my novel in the evenings and on weekends, and I learned so much about writing, and about writing in the classroom I wrote about it here.

We will continue to revise our novels through March.

Be sure to ask us about the characters and plots of our novels !
