8th grade getting ready for their close-up.
Love my 6th grade Power Hour students! This class is so clever and they really know how to write! We are having a great time together working on creative writing and learning things like description, dialogue, mood, tone, voice and plotting. In these photos they are all working on spooky stories for Halloween. The goal is to write something suspenseful and scary without any blood and gore. I can’t wait to read the finished products. You can already see one Grim Reaper in the background….
All the classes are settling in to our routine, only nothing is ever routine! Here are some of the 1st graders listening to a story read by Mrs. Manning. I think I took this photo on Explorer Day-some of the students are definitely out of uniform!
And don’t forget to shop at our Library Bookstore! We have gently used and new books, and for the discerning shopper, a few select items such as reading lights, car games, puzzles, paint sets and much more. All proceeds go to buy new books for the school library!
