The Thirdlanders 2016

I have met the new crew and they are wonderful.  3 days of school and we did a lot of awesome stuff.  I also made this website to market our classroom press.  I'm writing about marketing in chapter 4, so this is all part of the game plan.  I already have several favorite moments, but maybe my most favorite was when we started our writer's notebooks on Friday afternoon, 20 minutes before the end of the day.  I showed the new Thirdlanders how I liked to sketch and write in my notebook.  They were excited about doing the same kind of work in their notebooks.  One 3Ler said, "I wish I had done that this summer on my trip."  And then another said, "I'm going to start doing that in my notebook this weekend." Then another said, "Wow.  You are a REALLY good draw-er."

So, as you can see, we're ready for another epic year in Room 200.

I knew you just had to show them that notebook! One look at it and their responses were perfect! You have a darn fine crew there and will have an awesome year!
