Better late than never!!

So one of the blogs I follow and absolutely love is Two Writing Teachers.  I know, I know!  You are saying, “Well of course, Ms. B.  Is there anything about language arts you don’t love?”  Hmmm…nope!!  Well anyway, I digress (look that one up if you don’t know it).  The month of March is called the Slice of Life, and it is the blog a day challenge put out there by Two Writing Teachers.  I’m late.  Five days late (I beat the midnight deadline).  Hopefully by the end of this week I will have all my students hooked up to our new blog, “Writing Outside of the Lines”, and you guys will attempt to take the Slice of Life challenge.  I promise blogging is more fun than you would imagine, so you just have to take a leap of faith.  To be completely honest, I should have had you on the new blog sooner, but I became so engrossed (another word to check out) in finding fun video clips for you to view to help us go back over tone and mood, I lost track of time.  Who am I kidding?  I lost days! I think it was worth it though.  I saw the vast majority of you smiling and few of you even hid your eyes when I showed the “Scary Mary” remake of Mary Poppins.  Ha ha ha!  You’re getting the idea of tone and mood though, aren’t you?  🙂


About Ms. Burroughs

I teach 7th grade language arts at Edwards Middle School. I love anything to do with technology and using it in reading and writing. Learning shouldn't have to be boring nor should the job of teaching. "To me, education is a leading out of what is already there in the pupil's soul." ~ Muriel Spark

    Welcome to the challenge. I could really relate to how easy it is to lose time and days when you are caught up in teaching.

    Language Arts sounds incredible, your share your passion and emotion of language. I think teaching is marvelous, a way of sharing some of us. And always It is a feedback
