National Novel Writing Month:
Every November, my English Language Arts students participate in National Novel Writing Month and find their voice as authors.
My science students participate in Genius Hour to build important soft skills including research, communication, and working toward a deadline, all while learning about topics of personal passion and interest.
Second Grade Writing Lesson:
In this lesson, I review with students what we learned the previous day about poetry and couplets, and the students practice coming up with rhyming lines for couplets in a short shared writing activity before going to write their own couplets.
