Hey guys!! One of my favorite classroom traditions is sending the letter below to my parents. You will be blown away by the adorable responses you get back. You will gain such a neat perspective on your kiddos. I always keep the letters until the end of the year and send it back home in the final report card. Click on the letter below to download the pdf file.

Camp write along was a huge success!
The week started out with a field trip to the arboretum where our students were able to "live life as writers."
Each day began with a role call which consisted of chanting our writing songs. After that, students then headed back to the "bunk" where they wrote stories in our tent.
We were even surprised by a bear one day. Don't worry, we were able to lure the bear away with some donuts. I only suffered minor injuries that the nurse was able to bandage easily.
(yes, the bear is a wee bit scary)
The week culminated with a cook out and a cheer-off. Sadly, my class lost the cheer contest, but we still had a great time!! What is your favorite way to celebrate your writers?

I have always had the hardest time organizing my class library. This website/app lets you scan all of your library books using your iphone. It also allow you to upload your class list so that you can check out books to students. Therefore, all of your books are accounted for at all times. You can even set up an email that goes out to parents when your students' books are overdue. Did I mention it's free? OH YEAH! How cool is that?
Here's the link:
I am all about working smarter not harder. :)

I will post the "after" pictures as soon as I am finished. This may take awhile folks...
