I teach 25 of the most phenomenal human beings in America. Their diligence drives me to work harder each day. This year my class has dubbed itself, THE GREATEST class in our school. As such, they strive for excellence in all they do. No one walks the halls like they do because they are ... THE GREATEST. When they work, nobody works harder because... they are THE GREATEST. They were the undefeated “homework heroes”for 8 weeks straight because they determined to be undefeated all year. Most importantly, my class is a family. They love and support each other even when it is not easy because that’s what families do. But what I admire most about my kids, is that when they stumble, fall or fail, they get back up, redouble their efforts and try again, because they are determined to be... THE GREATEST.
My students have grown to treasure their writing time over the past few months of school. They fill their writing notebooks with the cutest, quirkiest, most creative pieces. I know having a place to “publish” their pieces would motivate my little authors to write even more. They will use their draw and write journals to publish a variety of writings from short stories to fables to poetry. Best of all, students will get to take their journals home at the end of the year to continue developing their new-found joy of writing. The class set of Pippi Longstalkings will be used during our DEAR (drop everything and read) time. Each student having their own copy of the book will allow students to follow along as I read plus Introduce students to a strong female main character.
