Just Write Incorporates Art Pieces in 2012

Aiden's Blue Dog Writing Drawing Work

We’re adding a new twist to Georgetown’s 2012 Just Write Week – art AND writing!  Just Write is a huge celebration of our year long work in writing, with student and staff stories covering every bit of space in our hallways and classrooms.  This year, we’re featuring artwork and poems in our multi-purpose room the week of May 14-18.  Oh how we love that Mrs. Brouwer…an amazing Art Teacher who loves to integrate art and curriculum!

Third grade artists created a piece of artwork and then wrote awesome poems about their art pieces.  Our art and writing inspiration is Louisiana artist George Rodrigue and his famous “Blue Dog” series.  Read and see more here!

Scavenger Hunt Winners: September

This past September we kicked off our first BLOG scavenger hunt! The goal of the hunt was to increase the readership of our blogs by offering prizes for students who participated.  The theme of the September scavenger hunt was “teacher vacations”.

Each student who participated (140 total) received a ticket for our upcoming Reading Counts drawing.  In addition, the classroom that had the most participants (Mrs. McDonald’s 3rd grade) won and hour of teaching time with ME as their teacher.  Finally, all students who participated were entered into a blog drawing and one student was selected–winning a $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble and a pumpkin carving kit!  Congratulations, Ray!

We have just kicked off our second scavenger hunt, TEACHERS HAVE HOBBIES, TOO! To participate, read through the blogs and enter your finds in the survey answer form. Happy Hunting…and thank you for reading our blogs, too!
