Welcome to Summer!

It is hard to believe the year is over!  It has been a wonderful, busy, full of surprises nine months!  Let’s take time to relax, renew, and recharge, and use the break to discover many wonderful things to bring back to the classroom. 

My summer reading list is a long one, and I look forward to spending some time with my favorite authors.  But I also look forward to long walks, hiking, and exploring new places.  I hope you have a long list of things you want to do this summer, too!

We will end this year with another tribute to what is happening in our classrooms.  This week, we will look at how one of our Willard North teachers worked on voice in Writing Workshop.  Listen to how Scarlett explains the project and then read the ebook the kids put together.  What a great way to integrate technology and writing strategies!

Also, third grade at Willard South has been working very hard on creating their Technology Portfolios.  Under the leadership of our computer teacher, Mrs. Sims, and each third grade teacher,  the third graders created a collection of projects they have worked on this year.  Their portfolios are stored on Myebooks.  I will send you the username and password in my email this week.  What amazing things our teachers and students are doing!
