Today in Math class, each student spent the entire math period competing in the World Maths Day Challenge. By the end of the school day, our fifth grade students had answered 32,928 correct math problems! (only 1,790 short of making the top 50 classes in the world!) As Dylan Hedges put it, “This is where [...]

I have discovered that fractions just can’t compete with World Maths Day. Now that we’ve moved back into a regular math routine again (and adding and subtracting fractions) it’s obvious that fractions just aren’t nearly as exciting to learn (OR to teach)! I’m glad I have such great students, though. They are working hard [...]

Welcome to my blog! I teach 7th grade Language Arts at McDowell Exchange School in the Logan Elm School district. I previously taught 5th grade at Laurelville Elementary (in the same district)-math for the last three years and language arts prior to that.
My hope is that this blog serves as a sort of newsletter for our class, keeping parents and students informed of class news and assignments for our Language Arts Class. I also intend for it to be a place where students can share their writing and their thoughts on books that they are reading.
In March 2009, my blog was showcased by Sue Walters on The Edublogger site. As a result, this blog has had visitors from all around the world. It has been so exciting to see new dots appear on my clustr map! (see the clustr map below as of 9/24/09) Thanks again, Sue!
Thanks for checking in. I would love to hear from you, so feel free to leave a comment and please visit again!
