Welcome to our weekly class newsletter. 

Each day we focus on a writing trait and the writing process. All lessons reflect the Common Core State Standards, including technology standards.

We learn to write through thinking, discussing, drawing, brainstorming, modeling, practicing, sharing, revising, and publishing.

We learn to read better through independent and class reading, practicing our reading strategies and conducting our own research and reflection with feedback from each other and the teacher. 

Join us in puzzling through the process of writing well. Dare to delve into your thoughts and learning, and share those ideas with others.

Students today enjoy the connectedness of social networking; it is part of their very being. My goal is to bring my instruction into that cloud to teach the content required in ways that inspire online responsibility and ethics in this new, very public world.

Please tune in to our journey.
