Hold on to your hats everyone, Storm Stella is coming our way! Panic in the streets! Make sure you have all the bread and milk in the store. Mug others for theirs if need be! Run! Panic! Freak out! AAAAAAAH!
or, y’know, something like that.
As is always the case at this time of year, the MCAS is imminent and my heart is hurting for my students. Many of them will do fine. They know how to organize their thoughts; they understand reading comprehension. They have this. My students who are lower-level English language learners have me worried. They try so hard, but their English grammar is not good yet. It’s getting there, but … not yet.
Some of my teacher friends and I started a creative writing club after school. So exciting! There has been an insane amount of positive feedback from the students. Students are producing great works. I’m hopeful that this is the start of something great for them and for us.
