Time for some fun updates before we launch into summer. And I mean launch! I’m working with the technical experts to assemble the last pieces for the new website. I’ll be sure to post about the transition as we get closer to launch.
Awards announcement for my favorite classroom!
I’ve been helping to teach a unit about the elements of fiction and got to work with wonderful tweens on their first stories. It’s been so rewarding and I love their enthusiasm and creativity! I especially loved seeing their progression to finish. Their teacher, Mrs. Root, is amazing too for taking this on at a young age. But her kids were ready and here’s the results:
Best Drawing – TIE – Chloe for Shrinkey and Terrina for War
Best Title – TIE – Logan for The Spider Apocalypse and Akashi for Dancing Hamsters
Best Progression from Draft to Final Version – Brayden for The Story of the Hidden Treasure
Best Story About Kindness – Tristan for The Braces
Best Portal – Joey for An Unforgettable Trip
Best Humor – George for Cap Turad
Best Twist at the End – Ellie for Three Days Left
Best Improved Descriptions – Will for The Pirate Invasion
Best Detail With Story – David for The Outbreak
I could use your feedback on my first ever giveaway. You can choose between:
- Cool gem crafts for summer fun
- A wonderful jewelry box to hide your treasures
- A quote-filled umbrella (with book quotes on the outside) for the book-lover in your life (or yourself!)
