Busy, Busy, Busy…


CHristmas packages

This what our classroom will look like when all of the books and resources are wrapped and ready to take to the North Junior High School feeder schools. It seems as though every day brings more and more to do, and that is a good thing, especially for the service-learning project. HUSKIES: Behind the Books is growing every day. It is amazing how many people are interested in investing in a project that promotes literacy.

Today all of the 8th garde ELA teachers went to the Scholastic Book Fair at the 4H booksCenter. We purchased lots of books with the money that has already been collected. We really enjoyed ourselves. Being around tons of books makes any ELA teacher happy!

  1. Mrs. Kassenbrock,

    I was wondering if we were going to have any more blog assignments. I always check the blog thinking, “I will probably have an assignment on the blog today,” but we never do! I was just wanting to make sure that maybe somewhere along the lines, we were going to have at least one more.
