Welcome to the Blog for Room 217 at Dovercourt Public School. In 2010, back in Room 52, at Alexander Muir/Gladstone Avenue PS, the idea for developing a blog took place. It is a place to begin lessons, open up discussions, and display the learning taking place.
So, why I may never find myself in Room 52 again, it serves as a reminder of a school community that was 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.
