Here’s the October Writing Contest!
I have been experimenting with creating badges, certificates and a sleek way to showcase student work using Google apps as I work on a Teacher’s Guide to School-Wide Writing Contests.
Feel free to submit! I had no idea how difficult is is to write a mystery story until I tried to write one! I have such respect for the carefully crafted mysteries with such satisfying endings that my students have created in the past. I wish I had saved some of their amazing work so I could share it with you!
