Welcome to another year of fun and learning at Harry Miller Middle School. Classes got off to their official start this week and everybody in 8 Wornell (8W), 8 Melanson (8M) and 8 LeClair (8LC) was eager to get started.
Our first week has been spent working our way through the first three chapters of “Drums, Girls and Dangerous Pie”, a novel by author Jordan Sonnenblick. This is a heart rendering story that the kids genuinely love. It allows for lots of discussion, generates a lot of excitement and, at this time of year, allows me to delve into teaching about the elements of literature while getting to know the kids and their learning styles a little bit better. Information about the novel can be found here.
Looking for a convenient way to stay up to date with what is going on in class?
Take a quick look at the column on the right hand side of this page. There you will find a spot where you can subscribe, by entering an email address, to “follow” this blog. I would encourage you to take advantage of this. When you subscribe you will receive an email which (1) lets you know that this blog has been updated and (2) actually provides you with the contents of the update.
Another option is to receive a link to such updates by following me on twitter @MrWornell.
My hope is that these options provide everyone with an easy way to stay informed about what is going on in class.
