October is here?

Not quite sure when it got to be fall. The leaves are falling from the trees, the wind is blowing, and it's beginning to rain and be gloomy far more often than I'd like. This has been a busy start to the year with all of our new adventures. Students have begun working on their Seminar projects and my readers are well into their novels. 7th graders are learning to persevere through difficult texts and 8th graders are learning that even though some novels have many pages, that long books can, indeed, be good books. It is amazing watching my students grow from the little sixth graders they came to me as a year ago, into the young adults that stand before me now. I look forward to watching them grow and change as the year continues to speed by me.
