Writing is hard fun. ~ Donald Murray

Welcome our writing class.

Join us in puzzling through the process of writing well. Dare to delve into your thoughts and learning, and share those ideas with others.
Each day students will write.  Each day they will practice a skill in the writing process and in the six  traits of good writing.

A note about Writing and Learning: Writing and Learning

Most parents are concerned with spelling errors in their child's writing. While we write, we circle any words we think we may have misspelled so we can look them up later for the final draft.  For spelling activities, here are some links:
