Welcome to My Moodle Page!
I'm your language arts teacher this year. You may be wondering, why the cannon animation? I could be clever and say, "You're going to have a real BLAST in language arts this year!" But I just made that up. Actually, I've taught social studies for years and years, but not this year. And I think that little cannon is wicked cool, so it's going to stay right where it is. But most importantly, I've embedded lots of Revolutionary War videos that you can watch as you study this exciting period of history with Mrs. Benson. In reading class, I'll teach you lots of deep-reading comprehension skills so you can truly understand and therefore appreciate what you're reading. We'll read some whole-class novels, but you'll also be able to choose the books you want to read. In writing workshop, you will learn the craft of writing by...writing, every day, and conferencing with me, your fearless teacher. You will learn the art of the personal narrative, how to write persuasive essays, fictional stories, and you'll even write a poem or two. Remember, writing is thinking. Reading is thinking. And you'll be doing a lot of both in my classroom.
