The past few months have been a whirlwind for me, so I haven’t had a chance to post. Now that school is almost here (crazy, I know!) I have had some time to think about how I want to change and improve my methods for my new students. Stay posted for tons of ideas about reading and writing!
One thing I want to mention now, so you can start thinking about how to incorporate it into your classroom is the Scholastic Writing Awards contest. This May, I had an awesome opportunity to go to New York City to the Scholastic building. I learned a lot about the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards, and saw first hand at the national awards ceremony at Carnegie Hall just how amazing this contest really is.
This is an amazing publishing opportunity for your students to win awards for their writing at a local level, and possibly even national level! If you are located in Northeast Ohio- email me, or leave a comment here, and I will give you more info. on the Scholastic Writing contest at our local level!
