Wonderful Writers and a Cool Down!

We have a room FULL of wonderful writers!!! We have been amazed at how dedicated and engaged everyone has been during writing time. Often it is difficult to write, and writing is usually a "least favorite" subject. However, I do have to say that I truly love how much effort is being put towards writing.

Here we are, hard at work!

We have also been inspired by the amount of writing our students generate in one sitting. Our writing motto is "The only mistake you can make is to NOT write!" and we have taken that motto to heart. By then end of 5th grade, a student should be able to write 2 full, single lined pages in one half hour sitting. Some were doing this (the 4th and 5th days of school) in a 15-20 minute sitting. Keep up the great work, writers!

On a slightly different note, I sure am looking forward to this cooler weather! It has been a little toasty the past few days and it will be a great change to get the cool breeze wafting through the classroom.
