Welcome to the Blog for Room 217. It is now summer and may post from time to time. I thoroughly enjoyed my first year at Dovercourt PS and look forward to the 2017-2018 school year and working in the Intermediate division. Room 52, at Alexander Muir/Gladstone Avenue PS, was where this blog was hatched, several years ago, and a reminder of a school central to my development as an educator. Thanks for visiting.

I think this is my 500th post. Cool.
In terms of paragraphing, I think I am going to use a fun exercise involving a narrative paragraph.
We are going to be using this book:
The images from this book will serve as the basis for developing a narrative paragraph around the images in the book.
To introduce this exercise, I found a Youtube video that I will share -- without the commentary -- to show the images the students will use the write a paragraph about.
Before we do this, we will work on several writing exercises, in class and for homework, to help the students prepare for this assignment.
