Wow! What a great beginning of a school year! I am amazed at what a great group of young men and women of honor we have in this fabulous bunch! We have started the school year with a focus on how we want to be treated and, in return, how we should treat others. We shared a wonderful book by Max Lucado entitled You Are Special. In my class, we are using the book to review reading skills such as character traits, character feelings, relating to the characters, summarizing, story plot and setting. We also compared and contrasted the text version to a dramatic version. This is just the beginning of our journey!
